Heinrich Hirt   German   1841 – 1902

Heinrich Hirt concentrated children as subjects; his theme often being their preoccupations and their place in the family.  The rapid passing of childhood innocence and the suggestion of youthful amusements were topics that always seemed to find an appreciative audience.

Although Hirt was well known as a painter of fine sentimental interpretation, few biographical details are available on his life. He was born in Furth, Germany, the son of a comb factory owner, Georg Karl Wilhelm Hirt.  His education and art instruction are not recorded, although his older brother, the sculptor Johann Christian Hirt attended the Munich Academy of Art.  Heinrich may have also received his training there while following in his brother’s footsteps.

The artist settled in Munich in 1862 and exhibited his work throughout much of the country in the 1870’s and 1880’s, particularly Berlin, Munich and Dresden.

Biography excerpted from the unpublished catalog by Edward P. Bentley for the Haussner Restaurant in Baltimore, Maryland, titled: Haussner’s The Children.
