This biography from the Archives of AskART:

The following was submitted by Albert E. Lane:

I first met William Gebhardt  in the winter of 1934-35 as a six year old, when I posed leaning on my elbow in a sailor suit with my two sisters.  He and I both share the middle name Edwin.  I still have the painting  in my study.  It was displayed at the Dayton, Ohio Art Museum.

Bill Gebhardt was very poor.  He and his wife lived on Hershey candy bars in 1934, (as he always had some for me). Bill's home and studio was on the 4th floor on the north side of West 4th Street East of Elm, above the Baldwin Piano store.  To go to his studio you had to go to the north east corner of West 4th & Elm, (up Elm to an alley that parallels West 4th Street. East on the alley with a gas light there.  Then walk up 4 flights of stairs.)  The studio was very barren.  Gebhardt at that time was obsessed with painting flowers in hats.  He also painted paintings with different types of fruit.

I own Still Life with Bust,  painted in 1934-35. It has within it a sculpture of a men's head and fruit in bright colors. This clay head actually represents a sculpture Bill Gebhardt made of himself when he was a struggling hungry artist in the 1930's.  I believe I remember the head sitting on a table when you entered the 4th floor loft.

Bill & I would bump into each other occasionally on the streets of Cincinnati.  He ran the Gebhardt School of Art across the street on East 5th, east of Main above the Empress Chile Parlor.
