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

Eugen Klimsch, father of the sculptor Fritz Klimsch, came from a family of artists in Frankfurt.  He received his initial training from his father at a young age, and later attended the Höhere Gewerbeschule and the Städel'sche Kunstinstitut in Frankfurt, before moving to Munich in 1860 to train further. 

Klimsch returned to his home town after five years and began teaching there at the Kunstgewerbeschule.  He later took over management of the Städel'schen Malschule, but died unexpectedly just a year later.  E. Ph. J. Hallenstein published an extensive biography of the artist in “Die Kunst unserer Zeit. Eine Chronik des modernen Kunstlebens“ (vol. VII, p. 45-60), which he closed as follows: “The artist had a happy home life, was loved and cherished by his many friends, admired in numerous circles and respected by everyone, until a strange and terrible twist of fate tore him from us.

Klimsch was an unusually versatile painter, creating both large frescoes - such as those made for the great hall of the Palmengarten in Frankfurt - and miniatures on vellum and ivory.  He also designed dining halls for several passenger ships and worked with great success as an illustrator of children's books and of classical works such as Goethe's “Dichtung und Wahrheit”.  Alongside this he also designed bank notes, menus, certificates and advertising posters.  Like the great Viennese painter Hans Makart, Klimsch often refers to the works of the old masters in his panel paintings.  In his oeuvre we find allusions to 17th century Netherlandish painting, the French Rococo and Empire style.
