Daniel F. Gerhartz Biography

Daniel Gerhartz was born in 1965 in Kewaskum, Wisconsin where he now lives with his wife Jennifer and their three young children. His interest in art piqued at an early age when a teenage friend suggested they spend one dreary afternoon drawing. It was at that moment that he discovered his lifework.
Gerhartz's compelling paintings resonate an honesty, integrity, and a directness immediately evident to the viewer. The artist's skillful and technically adept work celebrates the created world, human form, personal relationships, and a connection with landscapes and environments of special importance. Gerhartz chooses subjects that allow him to explore and capture the artistic challenges of color, light, mood, and emotion. Many of his figures are dressed in dramatic clothing which he often invents for its aesthetic appeal and lyrical quality. Inspired by Russian, European, and American masters including Nicolai Fechin, John Singer Sargent, Joaquin Sorolla, Carl Von Marr, and Anders Zorn and influenced by instructors Richard Schmid, John Baitinger and Bill Parks, Daniel Gerhartz has established himself as an important American painter among the leading talents of our time.
