This paper examines Finster’s collection of Inventions of Mankind and his paintings of American industrial icons such as Henry Ford and Eli Whitney. Additionally, this study explores Finster’s compulsive artistic productivity and his experimentation with mechanisms designed to create self-sustaining energy. By providing a comprehensive overview of Howard Finster’s fascination with inventions and industry, this paper serves to provide new insight and dimension into the often over-generalized interpretations of his extensive body of work
