Theodor Hosemann

Brandenburg a.d. Havel 1807 - Berlin 1875


Theodor Hosemann; born September 24, 1807, in Brandenburg an der Havel; died October 15, 1875, in Berlin. After completing an apprenticeship as a lithographer and drawer as well as attending the Academy of Art in Düsseldorf, Theodor Hosemann went to Berlin in 1828. His first illustrations in children's books, books for youths, and his humoristic drawings in the color papers published by George Gropius as of 1830 made Hosemann into a sought after illustrator for other publishing houses as well.
He became a professor at the Berlin Academy in 1857 and was appointed a member of the same in 1860. During his tenure in 1874, Heinrich Zille was also a student of his. Aside from those in children's and youth books, Theodor Hosemann was responsible for many illustrations in such literary works as Gottfried August Bürger's "Münchhausen," in E. T. A. Hoffmann's "Gesammelte Schriften" ("Collected Writings"), in Eugène Sues "Die Geheimnisse von Paris" ("The Secret of Paris"), and in the works of Ernst Moritz von Arndt and Joseph von Eichendorff.
He also gained popularity for his intelligently ironic and well-drawn representations of everyday scenes of Biedermeier Berlin in series such as "Berlin wie es ist - und trinkt" ("Berlin, how it is - and drinks") or "Buntes Berlin" ("Berlin in Color").
With his feather and chalk lithographs, Theodor Hoseman is a typical representative of the realistic Berlin style of the 19th century.
