HANS CHRISTIANSEN (German / 1866-1945)

Hans Christiansen was born in Flensburg and died in Wiesbaden. He was already well-known as a major figure in the German Arts and Crafts movement, the Volkskunst-Verein, when at the age of 29 he moved to Paris to study painting at the Académie Julian. The art of Hans Christiansen was influenced both by Art Nouveau and the work of the Nabis; Mucha and Toulouse-Lautrec were particularly strong influences. Christiansen was banned from painting by the Nazis in 1933, and concentrated thereafter on textile designs.
