Georges Schreiber (1904-1977) was born and raised in Brussels, Belgium, in what was likely a German family. He studied art in Germany before immigrating to the United States in 1928. Both as a painter and as a lithographer, Schreiber is known both for landscapes and city views. He was particularly taken by the poverty in the countryside, and depicted brave Americans facing hard work on farms. His style is reminiscent of Thomas Hart Benton’s regionalism. While many of his images are deadly serious, some show a propensity similar to Benton’s for a layer of whimsy.
