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

Christian Schad was born in Miesbach, Upper Bavaria, on 21 August 1894.  A passion for both art and music - he played the violin - forced him while still a schoolboy to chose between them.  In 1912 Christian Schad left higher secondary school and opted for painting. At the Munich Academy of Fine Arts* he started out in Heinrich von Zügel's painting class but changed after a semester to Becker-Gundahl's class in drawing from the nude.  At that time Schad met Georg Schrimpf and Erns (showing 500 of 5876 characters).
