Biography  
Gustav Rehberger


Described as a "volcanic expressionist" and a painter of "chromatic fury", Gustav Rehberger worked in oil, gouache, pencil and pen to create artwork where "every stroke was charged with a continuous flow of activity; whirling, driving--a blaze of tempests, turbulence, exciting commotion when one would expect the subject to leap off the paper or canvas."

In addition to expressionist paintings, Rehberger did drawings and paintings of human figures, horse subjects and apocalyptic themes that expressed from his strong religious beliefs.

He was born in Riedlingsdorf, Austria and showed early art talent. When he was age 13, he emigrated to Chicago with his family, and the next year won a scholarship to the Art Institute of Chicago.   ...  Displaying 750 of 18911 characters.
