Hans Dahl, Norwegian 1849 – 1937

Hans Dahl of Hardanger, Norway, passed the greater part of his youth in the National Military Academy.  A line officer in the regular army for several years, he resigned in 1871 to become a painter.

He entered the art school at Carlsruhe, where he was a pupil of Riefstahl and Hans Gude.  The latter instructor, being a fellow countryman, stressed the grandeur and beauty of Norway in his landscapes, and pictures by Dahl tend to convey the same flavor.

The artist also resided in Dusseldorf where he studied briefly under E. Von Gebhardt and Wilhelm Sohn.  Dahl traveled and sketched extensively in Norway during the summer months.  He also visited Paris, Berlin and London where the influence of other artists affected his color and technique.

Dahl found great favor in Europe, especially Germany.  The artist himself even appealed to a sentimental public as one critic wrote:  “Hans Dahl is one of Nature’s most genial productions, and his warm, sunny heart defies the dreary coldness of his northern home.  Everything he paints gets a touch of warmth from his heart, and no man meets him without feeling the genuineness of his character.”

Biography excerpted from the unpublished catalog by Edward P. Bentley for the Haussner Restaurant in Baltimore, Maryland, titled: Haussner’s, The Children.
