Fritz background

Germany • 1848−1911

He studied at the Academy of arts of Dresden. In 1866-1878 he passed the military service, in parallel continuing training at L. A. Shuster, and since 1876, Makart at the Academy of fine arts Vienna. In 1877-1879 he worked in the Academy of fine arts Munich under Piloty, Diez, Lindensmith. Under the influence of F. Lenbach became interested in Dutch painting, which he studied in the Pinakothek in Munich. In 1879 goes to M. Munkacsy in Paris. Having returned to Munich, became close with M. Lieberman, who in 1882 worked in Zandvoort. He painted everyday scenes, truthfully portraying the characters, their facial expressions, the situation of the interiors.

In 1866, at the age of 18 years Haibara was accepted into the High school of fine arts in Dresden. However, there is Haibara couldn't reconcile with the prevailing order there and the following year joined the army. A military career has Already completed in 1877 with the rank of captain of the guards regiments. In the same year, they had Already moved to Munich, where he studied at the Academy of fine arts. Haibara thought highly of the old Dutch masters, whose work he studied carefully in Munich.

Meeting with a fellow artist Mihaly Munkacsy influenced the decision Already to move to Paris in the autumn of 1879, where for several weeks he worked in his Studio and continued to study Dutch painting. Under its influence they had Already written their first leaf: "Singer and performing dogs", "Family concert" and the "Dutch diner".

A trip to Holland in 1882 strengthened the principles of sweepstake that have already absorbed the impression of Oud from Parisian artists. His later painting "Arrival of the organ grinder" ("memories of Zandvoort"), and "the Lesson of drumming Bavarian soldiers" were just preparation for the main goal in the work that was set before him, the artist.

Fritz von Haibara wrote religious paintings. On the basis of a reinterpretation of the principles of color and naturalistic forms Haibara wanted to firmly connect the history of the New Testament with modernity, creating a deep and simple artistic display based on the images from the lower strata of the population. His artistic motive, "Jesus of the poor" was later apprehended by representatives of the Church painting, working in the expressionist manner, as, for example, in the painting "Savior of the XX century" Peter Hecker. Fritz von Ude is considered the harbinger of modern religious art of the twentieth century.

In Munich, Ude was given the title "Royal Professor," and he often lectured at the Academy of fine arts.

Professor Fritz von Haibara died on 25 February 1911 at the age of 62 years in Munich.

As the official critic and the public rejected most of my paintings Already because of the "usual and terrible", in his paintings. However, the Professor and Haibara were a lot of fans, compares the artist with the Rembrandt for a close relationship with nature.
