Howard Finster
(December 2, 1916 – October 22, 2001)
The Reverend Howard Finster is perhaps the most famous religious artist alive today. Because Finster realized that his congregation did not remember his sermons even minutes after he had finished, he published religious songs and poetry in local newspapers in the 1930s and hosted a radio prayer show in the late 1930s and early 1940s. He claims God charged him to illustrate his religious visions in 1976 when “A warm feeling came over me to paint sacred art.”
