  • About the artist
    Little is known about the German artist Hans Schadow. In the 1890s he lived in St. John’s Wood in London and painted both portraits and scenes in the Middle and Far East, including a garden in Alexandria, a view of Jerusalem and the Temple of Philae in southern Egypt. Schadow exhibited one work at the Royal Society of Artists in Birmingham and one at the Royal Society of Portrait Painters in London, between 1894 and 1898.
