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.

The following biographical information has been provided by David Kwiat, researcher.
Curt Lahs was born in Dusseldorf in 1893. In 1919 he had his first group show in the Galerie Flechtheim, Dusseldorf. In 1921 he became a member of the influential art collective, "Junge Rhineland", whose members included Johanna Ey and Peter Jurgen. He subsequently exhibited at Mutter Ey.

Beginning in 1930, and up until his teaching credentials were taken away by the Nazis as a result of his "anti-fascist" activity, Lahs taught art at the State Art School in Berlin. From 1933 to 1943, Lahs had numerous shows in France, Italy, and Yugoslavia, and in 1945 he participated in two well known shows at Galerie Gerd Rosen and Galerie Bremer.

From 1947 on, Lahs taught art at the University of Halle, and later at the School for Art in Berlin (Hochschule fur Bildende Kunste in Berlin). He was the recipient of the Stahl und Eisen (Stell and Iron) Kunstpreis (Artprize) in 1952, Dusseldorf, and received the Artprize of the City of Berlin (Kunstpreis der Stadt Berlin) in 1954.
