George Hinke (1883-1953) was a German-born painter who came to the United States in 1923. After working in a printing shop, he eventually opened his own studio.

From 1944 until his death in 1953, he was commissioned by Ideals Magazine to create works for publication depicting American small-town life, religious scenes and Christmas themes in his classic, nostalgic style.
