Name: Carl Wilhelm Hubner
Dates: (1814 - 1879)
Nationality: German
Biography: The genre painter Carl Wilhelm Hubner studied first in his native Königsberg, Germany, with Johann Edward Wolff (1786 1868), and then at the Düsseldorf Academy under Wilhelm Schadow (1788 1862) and Carl Sohn (1805 1867). In 1864 he became a professor at the Academy. Hubner established his reputation with paintings relating to contemporary social problems; his works met with great success, particularly in Holland and America (he visited the U.S. in 1874-75), which led to honorary memberships in the Amsterdam Academy and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia. Hubner also exhibited at the Berlin Academy. In addition to the National Gallery in Berlin, today his work is in museums in Königsberg, Düsseldorf, Hanover, and Oslo.
