For one of his books - The Life of Jesus, Gerhard Haderer had even faced the court. The book triggered violent reactions in Europe, which mainly came from the Catholic Church. The culmination of the story was in 2005 when Haderer was convicted in Greece for insulting the religious community and received a six-month suspended sentence in absentia. Several months later, the verdict was corrected on appeal and Gerhard Haderer was acquitted.
The artist got his realistic style while working as a graphic designer and illustrator for advertising agencies early in his career. After a cancer operation in 1985, Gerhard abandoned his commercial dreams and became a freelance caricaturist and satirical illustrator.
