Hans von Faber du Faur


German Impressionist painter and military officer, also noted as the son of the Bavarian cavalry major and painter Otto von Faber du Faur.

As an artist Hans von Faber du Faur set himself the task of capturing moving, changing appearances in the play of light, which is particularly evident in his strong-hued watercolours. In his extensive work, drawings and paintings of horses and their riders predominate, yet he also painted portraits, group pictures, beach and street scenes as well as depictions of sports.

Hans von Faber du Faur died on 3 December 1940 in Munich at age 77.
