Description
Finster, Howard (American, 1916-2001),2 Coca Cola (Black and Blue Backgrounds, serigraphs printed in colors, both pencil signed and black one is numbered 16/50, 32 x 11 inches, framed with a decorative frieze wood frame measuring 38 x 17.5 inches, Howard Finster (1916-2001) may be one of the best known American self-taught artists, his distinct style recognizable for its use in popular culture in the late 20th century. Born in Alabama, Finster was a Baptist minister, and his relationship with God inspired him to create a museum which he titled the Plant Farm Museum, but has come to be referred to as Paradise Garden. The four acres of land included a number of buildings, including the five-story Folk Art Chapel, to house his abundance of work. Finster?s art, brightly-colored and finely-detailed, is frequently decorated with religious or Biblical text, and it gained much attention after appearing on the album covers of bands such as R.E.M and the Talking Heads, amongst others. His pieces are in the permanent collections of the Smithsonian Institution in Washington DC, the Georgia Museum of Art, the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, the Milwaukee Art Museum, and Intuit: The Center for Intuitive and Outsider Art in Chicago.
