Hans von Marées (December 24, 1837 - June 5, 1887)

Hans von Marees was a German painter. He mainly painted country scenes in a realistic style. Marees' lifelong companion was art theorist and critic Konrad Fiedler, who, in his Kunstwissenschaft, created the theory of pure form, rejecting the concepts of Beauty and Art. However, Marees also had an 8 years love affair with sculptor Adolph von Hildebrand. In 1869, von Marees visited France, the Netherlands and Spain with Fiedler. He served in military in the Franco-Prussian War (1870–71) and then lived in Berlin and Dresden for a while. In 1873, he decorated the library walls of the newly built German Marine Zoological Institute in Naples, Italy with von Hildebrand. In 1877, von Hildebrand married Irene Schäuffelen. A painting by von Marees immortalized this event, with Irene in the middle of von Marees and von Hildebrand, with von Hildebrand reaching out to von Marees. Von Marees spent the last years of his life in Rome, supported by Fiedler. He died there in 1887, at the age of 49, and was buried in the Protestant Cemetery.
