Nestled deep in the woods near Kewaskum, in Wisconsin’s lush Kettle Moraine, sits Daniel Gerhartz’s studio. Inside, it feels as though you have stepped back in time to the grand manner painting of the Gilded Age. Canvases finished and unfinished line the walls. Paints, brushes, and a palette flank an enormous wooden easel; overstuffed chairs, props, and luxurious fabrics await the next model. Gerhartz, born in Kewaskum in 1965, practices a form of Realism that traces its origins to the great figurative and portrait painters of the late nineteenth century.
