Viktor Paul Mohn

1842 Meissen – 1911 Berlin

The painter and illustrator Viktor Paul Mohn studied at the Dresden Academy and from 1861 to 1866 continued his training in the studio of Ludwig Richter, whose style strongly influenced him, especially in his graphic work. Following a study visit to Rome (1868/69) he taught as a professor at the Dresden Academy. In 1883 he moved to Berlin, where he lived and worked for the rest of his life. Mohn is a typical representative of Late Romanticism and his work is characterized by a predilection for the narrative, genre-like detail reminiscent of the late Richter.
