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

Hans Huber Sulzemoos was born March 21, 1873 in Sulzemoos and died March 7, 1951 in Munich.  He was a German children pictures, flower, Madonna and landscape painter, with religious motives dominating his work.

He was the son of farmer and innkeeper Martin Huber and his wife, Theresa, nee Parl.  When he was three years old his father died unexpectedly of a heart attack.  His mother had to sell the property and moved with her three children to Fuerstenfeldbruck.  Hans soon showed great love for nature.  The boy was interested in beetles, butterflies and flowers, which he also drew.

In 1876, after moving to the capital city of Munich, he took an apprenticeship in stained glass at the Mayer'schen Hofkunstanstalt. From 1888 he studied at the Munich Academy and in the private art school of Anton Ažbe.  After studying, he worked for several years as a glass painter in Innsbruck and Speyer.  In the latter city, he met his wife Elizabeth. In 1897 the two got married and subsequently had five sons.

Since the late twenties, Huber-Sulzemoos was an honorary member of the fraternity KSTV Rhenania Innsbruck, in 1928 he took part in the celebration for the KSTV Southern Tyrol. With his friend Matthew Schiestl he undertook extensive study tours of Germany, Italy and England, with the two artists mainly interested in old chapels and works of old masters.

Hans Huber Sulzemoos added the name of his home town to his last name in remembrance and out of gratitude.  He created several altarpieces such as the Holy Family in the Catholic Church to Cologne-Zollstock or the Sacred Heart Catholic altar in the parish church of Cologne-Sülz.  In addition to the countless images of Christian art, Hans Huber Sulzemoos always painted the Dachau moss.

The artist's works were exhibited in 1914 in the Munich Glass Palace.  There was a fire on June 6, 1931 which destroyed many of his most important works.  In the early 1920s he illustrated the Bible by Bishop Michael Buchberger which was used in the Catholic schools in Bavaria.  It had a total edition of more than a million copies.

Hans Huber Sulzemoos is buried in the cemetery located in Munich-Obermenzing.  The decorative picture of the Madonna on the gravestone was created by the artist at the occasion of the death of his wife in 1929.  His grave, which doesn't bear an inscription any more, is now maintained by the City of Munich.
