This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Hans Kleiber was born in Cologne, Germany in 1887 and died at the Eventide Nursing Home in Sheridan, Wyoming in 1967.  He was a traditional Western etcher, painter, and illustrator.

He came to Wyoming from Germany in 1906 and in 1907, he entered the U. S. Forestry Service as a Ranger with duties throughout the Northwest.  When he resigned in 1924, it was to devote his entire time to art, despite his lack of formal art instruction.

In 1931, he received the Silver Medal Award from the California Print Makers Society.  He was a member of the Associated American Artists.

His work is in the collection of the Library of Congress; the Wyoming State Art Museum in Cheyenne, Wyoming; the University of Wyoming in Laramie, Wyoming; the Montana Historical Society in Helena, Montana; The Bradford Brinton Memorial and Museum in Big Horn, Wyoming; and the Buffalo Bill Historical Society in Cody, Wyoming.

Biography from Thomas Minckler Fine Art:
Hans Kleiber (1887-1967)

Born in Germany, Kleiber came to the United States as a young man, expecting virgin forests and wide open spaces where he settled in Massachusetts.   Instead he found factories and noise.

He left school after a year to help support the family and at age 18 joined the Forest Service.

Kleiber's first assignment as a logger took him to the Big Horn Mountains of Wyoming.  He soon became a ranger, building a cabin on the West Fork of the Tongue River.   One of his longtime friends in the Big Horns was William Gollings, well known Western painter and cowboy.

From 1918 to 1923, the Forest Service sent Kleiber all over the Northwest, from Minnesota to Washington.   During this time he taught himself to draw, making studies of landscapes, animals creeks, and mountains.   He studied printmaking and etching.

Kleiber was also a poet.   He published a small book of poems, Songs of Wyoming in 1963.

In the 1930s Kleiber's art was shown in the United States and Europe, including one selected for the 1939 New York World's Fair.   In 1944 his nature studies were given a special showing at the National Museum in Washington, D.C.

Kleiber's studio in Dayton, Wyoming was a rustic log cabin where he entertained visitors with his love of art and nature.

He passed on at the Eventide Nursing Home in Sherida, Wyoming.
