Biography  
Fridolin Haass


Biography from the Archives of askART

Born in Germany on March 6, 1886.  While a resident of NYC in the 1920s, Haass made trips to California.  A view of the Santa Barbara Mission is extant.

He died in Orange, California on January 3, 1959.

The following additional information was submitted by Niels Reimers in July of 2006:

Fridolin Haass lived in Carmel, California in at least the forties.  My parents ran the Carmel Inn, a very modest inn of about 20 rooms, where Mr. Haass stayed for a period.  He paid, at least in part, for his room with 2 watercolor paintings.  One was painted from his room at the Inn, of our cottage home (now a restaurant).  The other is from behind the 13th green of the  Pebble Beach golf course, toward the ocean and Point Lobos.
