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

Hans Fechner was a painter from Berlin who studied there at the Academy of Arts between 1877-1883.  He then went to Munich to do further studies as the master student of Defregger.  In 1892 he returned to Berlin to be named Professor and conservator at the print room (Kupferstichkabinett) in Berlin.

He exhibited more than once at the exhibitions of the Royal Academy in Berlin and the Great Art Exhibition Berlin between 1883 and 1903.  With portraits of nearly all the important people in Berlin, including Theodor Fontane, Virchow and the Emperor, he became famous during his lifetime.

He suffered from an unidentified disease that ruined his eyesight around 1910/15 which forced him to end his painting.   He turned towards writing and luckily became a successful author.  Still, he is more known for his paintings, some of which can nowadays be seen at the Märkische Museum in Berlin, the Städtischen Galerie in Braunschweig and the collection of the Nationalgalerie in Berlin.
