This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Carl Haag was born in Bavaria in 1820 and died in 1915. A naturalized British painter and court painter to the Duke of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, he was trained in the academies at Nuremberg and Munich. He practiced first as an illustrator and as an oil painter of portraits and architectural subjects.

After he settled in England in 1847, he devoted himself to watercolors, and was elected associate of the Royal Society of Painters in Watercolors in 1850 and a member in 1853.

He traveled much visiting Dalmatia, Egypt, Syria, the Holy Land and Greece, and made a considerable reputation by his firmly drawn and carefully elaborated paintings of Eastern Subjects. Towards the end of his professional career Carl Haag left England and returned to Germany.

In 1986, the the Greek Filotelique Service in Athens issued a commemorative "Greece - Europe" envelope using a Carl Haag painting of the Acropolis.
