Hans von Marées


Painter of the so-called Idealist school in Germany.

In 1853 Marées went to Berlin, where he studied for two years. For the next eight years he worked chiefly in Munich, coming under the influence of the historical school, and in 1864 he went to Italy, where he lived for about 20 years. In 1873 he received his most important commission, the painting of frescoes in the library of the zoological museum at Naples. Although ambitious, Marées lacked self-confidence and, in the latter part of his life, ceased to exhibit his work.

He died a disappointed and practically unknown man on 5 June 1887, Rome.
