Hans Thoma

Thoma, Hans (häns tōˈmä) [key], 1839–1924, German painter and lithographer. He was influenced by Courbet. His later, individual style, modeled on that of old German woodcuts, shows rich coloring and depth of imaginative feeling. In 1899 he became director of the Karlsruhe Gallery and professor of the academy. The Metropolitan Museum has his painting At Lake Garda.
