  • Hans Hamza (1879-1945) was born in Vienna and is recognised for charming and highly detailed genre paintings and still lifes. Hamza inherited his artistic skill from his father Johann, a leading exponent of Viennese genre painting in the 1880s. Hamza studied at the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts before joining his fathers’ studio, perfecting his figurative and interior scenes.

    Famed for intimate portraits of female sitters, Hamza was deeply inspired by the masterpieces of the Dutch Golden Age. He captured a humble peasant girl with the same elegant attention that he gave elite Viennese debutantes, often sitting poised to the side, either reading, embroidering or flower arranging, bathed in warm light in the manner of Johannes Vermeer. Hamza also depicted jovial gentlemen and peasants in a tavern or sat by the hearth. He delighted in capturing the finest details, rendering an abundance of texture and form within each masterful evocation
