moreSwiss artist Fredi Gertsch creates lively colorful pop-folk art paintings with one inexhaustible element: the Emmentaler cow. Humor and optimism are essential traits of the artist: "The smiles of the viewers, the joys of the gallery visitor is the desired award for me." Gertsch's imagination propagates hills and valleys of colorful cows. Each of his paintings contains a different characteristic approach; combining colors, collage, and textures that invite humor, delight, and happiness.
This 13 inch square colorful original artwork is ready to hang. The sides of the artwork are painted and it does not require framing. It is signed by the artist on the front of the painting. Affordable Continental U.S. and worldwide shipping is available. A certificate of authenticity issued by the art gallery is included.
His first major exhibition as a freelance artist was in Hamburg, Germany. Since then numerous cows, calves and bulls of the Swiss Emmental valley, where Fredi Gertsch has been living over 35 years, graze in the cool apartments of city dwellers and countryside homes in Europe, North and South America as well as Asia.
Each cow painting from Gertsch is able to enjoy environments beyond that of the pasture. “Lolita” has been adopted by an Indian family living in New York and today she mischievously enjoys the view from a skyscraper in Brooklyn. “Fleurette” has made it into the Swiss Alps, and “VoguLisi” flew to Texas to experience the vast expanse of land.
Gertsch says “Because of my worldwide collectors, my cattle are the happiest Emmentaler cows - hardly born, they stagger onto the biggest pastures in the world". His collectors all agree "It must be a kind person who paints such lovable cows.” Many of Gertsch’s paintings have traveled halfway around the world, decorating modern apartments, holiday homes, medical practices, hotels, and public buildings. His cows can be found in Singapore, Hong Kong, Zurich, New York, Texas, Berne, Munich and Berlin, Sydney, Oslo, Hamburg, and Salzburg, from the Emme Valley all the way to sunny Los Angeles. less
