Genre painter Johann Hamza was born in Vienna and studied under E.D. Von Engerth at the Vienna Academy. Exhibiting in Vienna, Dresden, and Munich between 1879 and 1890, he was considered among the best of European genre painters.

A consummate craftsman who employed a detailed palette and fine brushwork, Hamza painted everyday scenes around him with an air of drama which appealed to collectors of the day.

We hope you enjoy this Artwork Spotlight from the Taubman Museum of Art's permanent collection!
