Art Brokerage: Gerhard Nesvadba German Artist: b. 1941. Gerhard Nesvadba was born in 1941 in Ober-Ramstadt, Germany. When he was young, Gerhard's father identified and encouraged his son's artistic abilities, and after completing his formal education in 1958, began to paint professionally. Moving to Vienna, Austria in 1962, he married and started a family; a family that today includes his very talented and successful son, Christian Nesvadba. After his first group showing in Stockholm in 1968, he participated in additional expositions that led to his first one-man show in Copenhagen in 1971. That same year, he was offered a position as Art Professor at the Ministry for the Arts. He taught for several years before resuming painting as his full time profession. Gerhard Nesvadba belongs to the small company of genuinely skilled artists who have an innate command of the foundations of light, composition, and color. Listings wanted.
