Hans Thoma: 71 Masterpieces


Hans Thoma was a German painter. In spite of his studies under various masters, his art has little in common with modern ideas, and is formed partly by his early impressions of the simple idyllic life of his native district, partly by his sympathy with the early German masters, particularly with Altdorfer and Cranach. In his love of the details of nature, in his precise drawing of outline, and in his predilection for local coloring, he has distinct affinities with the Pre-Raphaelites. A portrait of the artist and two subject pictures are at the Dresden Gallery; “Eve in Paradise” and “The Open Valley” at the Frankfort Museum. Other important pictures of his are “Paradise,”, “The Flight into Egypt,” “Charon,” “Pietà,” “Adam and Eve,” “Solitude,” “Tritons,” besides many landscapes and portraits. He has also produced numerous lithographs and pen drawings, and some decorative mural paintings, notably in a café at Frankfurt, and in the music room of the Pringsheimer house in Munich.
