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

Hans Meid was a major leader of impressionism*, along with Max Slevogt, in Germany during the first decades of the twentieth century.  A talented lithographer*, etcher*, engraver* and painter, Hans Meid studied art in Karlsruhe under the direction of Trubner and Conz.  His first artistic work dates from 1907 when he was employed as a designer for the firm Meissen*, a porcelain manufacturer.

Within a few years, however, Meid had established himself in Berlin as a printmaker*, creating both etchings and lithographs, and he soon began exhibiting his art throughout Europe.  1918 saw the first publication of a catalogue of his prints.  In 1919 he accepted the post of Professor of Engraving at the Berlin Academy.

During his career, Hans Meid created over 550 original lithographs, etchings and dry points, the majority being landscapes, figure studies and portraits.  Most were made between 1910 and 1930, the period most scholars point to as being Meid's greatest.
