About

Born in Switzerland in 1952, Fredi Gertsch was a competitive swimmer, sports teacher, computer engineer - and the father of three boys. Unlike his kids, his sketches, goodnight stories and daydreams of the past have never grown up. This colorful 32 inch square original artwork is wired and ready to hang. The sides of this mixed media artwork are painted and it does not require framing. It is signed by the artist on the front of the painting. Free local Los Angeles area delivery. Affordable Continental U.S. and global shipping options available. A certificate of authenticity issued by the art gallery is included. Today Gertsch trains his imagination in the studio, inventing new stories on canvas daily. He has no limits, but the common thread in his work is always the cow. 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. “Lolita” from the pasture was 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 “sVoguLisi” flew to Texas, possibly wanting to visit with one of the much celebrated US cattle farms. 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 ..."
