Howard Finster, American folk artist and Baptist pastor, only began his art career when was 60 years old. Born in Alabama in 1916, Finster was raised in a Baptist household and gave his first sermon as a teenager. Themes from his Christian faith, coupled with Southern storytelling traditions, later suffused many of Howard Finster's prints. Indeed, it's said a vision inspired the first of many paintings by Howard Finster, and from then until his death in 2001, he made thousands of art pieces.
