Marius Bauer

(1867 - 1932)

Bauer began his education at the age of ten at the Haagse Academie, where he studied together with George Hendrik Breitner, Isaac Israels and Willem de Zwart. Bauer became a famous painter, drawer, watercolourist, photographer and illustrator of political pictures and prints. He is also known for his depiction of oriental themes.

Almost all of his works have exotic eastern themes ranging from cultures like Egypt, the islamitic cultures of India, parades in the former Dutch East Indies, Ceylon and Cambodia. His style is impressionistic and was heavily influenced by the Haagse School.
