Georg Hermann Gelbke
Born: August 12, 1882 in Rochlitz, Sachsen, Germany
Died: March 17, 1947 (Aged 64.217) in Dresden, Sachsen, Germany
Georg Gelbke studied at the Art Academy in Dresden, but study tours brought him to several European countries. He mostly painted landscapes in Saxony and Prussia, especially winter images of the Curonian Spit. Much of Gelbke’s life's work was lost in a bombing raid on Dresden in 1945, when his studio was destroyed.
