Biography Emil Hansen
The following information is from a relative of the artist.
I am the great granddaughter of Emil Hansen. His correct name should be Emil Gustav Dannhausen. He studied at the Berlin Academy of Fine Arts. He was art director for a Chicago etching and manufacturing company for over 30 years and was President of the Austin Town Hall Art Guild.
In his spare time, he restored paintings that were a century or more old. He worked in oil, water color and ink sketches. The Chicago Tribune once quoted him as saying, "My favorite method," he said with a chuckle, "is to find a bottle of beer first. The painting goes better then!" (Metro Section, Chicago Tribune, May 14, 1949)
He was born 8/15/1
