Johann Peter Hasenclever (1810–1853)
He is considered one of Germany's most important genre
painters of the 19th century. He influenced important artists such as
Carl Spitzweg and Wilhelm Busch.
Hasenclever was born in Remscheid and
studied at the Düsseldorf Academy under Wilhelm von Schadow. Study
visits took him to Munich and Italy. After 1842, he settled in
Hasenclever's paintings often show humorous and social
critical subjects. He became known, for example, for his series of works
illustrating Carl Arnold Kortum’s satirical hero story ‘Life, Opinions,
and Deeds of Hieronymus Jobs’, including the painting ‘The
Examination’, which was acquired in 1840 by the Bavarian King Ludwig I.
Hasenclever was also a successful portrait painter.
Today, works by
Hasenclever are on display in major museum collections, including the
Neue Pinakothek in Munich, the Museum Kunst Palast, Düsseldorf, the
Wallraf-Richartz Museum in Cologne, the Alte Nationalgalerie Berlin, and
the Museum of Fine Arts in Leipzig.
