Hamza10083
Johann Hamza was a painter of genre who was born in Teltsch on 21 June 1850. He studied under E. D. Von Engerth at the Vienna Academy. Hamza exhibited in Vienna, Dresden and Munich between 1879 and 1890.

A leading exponent of genre painting, Johann Hamza was amongst the best of German genre painters. At a very early age he was already a consummate craftsman who conceived his pictures in a highly detailed palette.

Hamza painted with the intention of depicting striking situations, which appeal to collectors of extremely fine genre. The eloquence of his pictures result from his dexterity in rendering precisely the surfaces of all - materials, objects or figures in their grand surroundings. The light and dark colour harmonies and their skillful groupings attribute to his eminent placing in the ranks of German figure painters
