Thoma, Hans

 

Born Oct. 2, 1839, in Bernau, Baden; died Nov. 7,1924, in Karlsruhe. German painter and engraver.

Thoma studied in an art school in Karlsruhe from 1859 to 1866 and was a professor at the Karlsruhe Academy of Fine Arts from 1899 to 1916. His realistic landscapes, portraits, and scenes from country life, which are noted for their rich, full-bodied color, are painted in a distinctive national romantic style. Typical examples include The Evening Hour (1868; Kunsthalle, Hamburg), Black Forest Landscape (1872; National Gallery, Berlin), and Self-portrait (1880; Picture Gallery, Dresden). His later symbolic religious pictures reveal the influence of A. Boecklin, especially in their use of fantastic elements and stylization, for example, Adam and Eve (1897; the Hermitage, Leningrad).

The skeleton had acted in earlier self-portraits by German painters such as Hans Thoma or Arnold Boecklin as the inspiring figure of death.
This is turn-of-the-century Symbolism with a German accent, with highly romantic, sometime morbid and often erotic images from artists ranging from Arnold Bocklin and Franz von Stuck to the little known Hans Thoma, Ludwig Van Hoffmann and Hans von Marees.
However, to affirm an influence of Hans Thoma's At the Rhine near Sackingen on Heine's The Angler, or of Hans Thoma's Taunus Landscape near Eppstein on Heine's Execution seems dubious, whereas the link between the latter and Hans Thoma's The Bridge is convincingly explained, as are the parallels and contrasts between Franz von Stuck's Innocence and Heine's Portrait of a Boy.

Others unlikely to be familiar are Hans Thoma, who painted arcadian scenes in the 1880s, and von Hoffman, whose sometimes rather tackily painted images of naked, fit young people frolicking in spring landscapes perhaps embody the soon-to-be-dashed optimism of an emerging nation in an emerging century.
