About Hans am Ende

In 1889 Hans am Ende co-founded the artists’ colony in Worpswede together with Fritz Mackensen, Otto Modersohn, Fritz Overbeck, Heinrich Vogeler and Carl Vinnen. Their participation in the Munich Artists' Cooperative Exhibition of 1895 resulted in honours and purchases for the small group and thus their artistic breakthrough.

Hans am Ende, born in Trier on 31 December 1864, became a student at the Munich Academy from 1884-89, with an interruption of two years. His personal acquaintance with Fritz Mackensen, who had discovered the unknown farming village in the Teufelsmoor north of Bremen by chance, prompted Ende to settle in Worpswede for good in 1889.

Hans am Ende's strongly coloured paintings mainly focus on the moorland. Here he was far away from the academic art establishment and found an immediately captivating experience of nature. He captured the rugged landscape in atmospheric, delicate nature paintings.

In his later work, the Swiss high mountains became the focus of his motifs. He spent the last years of his life there and died in 1918.
