Karl Bauer (portrait by Hugo von Hofmannsthal, circa 1916)


German painter, printmaker and poet whose traditional skills in draftsmanship made him a popular illustrator and portrait artist in the early 20th century. In his later life he made a number of portraits of Nazi leaders, including several of Adolf Hitler. His poetry was admired and promoted by Stefan George. In addition to poetry, Bauer was a prolific writer on history, literature and religion. On 6 May 1942, he died during a visit to Munich at age 74.
