Gerhard Finke

Gerhard Finke (1917) is a German painter, graphic artist and sculptor.
Finke studied at the Düsseldorf Art Academy from 1945 – 1948.  At the Kölner Werkschulen he learned ceramic and fine plastic techniques.
In 2003, Finke donated his artistic work to the Städtische Museum Wesel: drawings, wood and linocuts, paintings in oils and acrylics, as well as collages and sculptures.
He painted more than 8000 paintings and made many clay sculptures. His most famous clay figure was the bird of Voerde, which is also cast in bronze in various versions in the city center of Voerde.
Finke made black and white prints in the style of Otto Pankok in the 1960s. Only since the year 2000 did Finke produce pictures in color.
