Gerhard Friedrich Paul Georg Wilhelm von Haniel, or Haniel-Niethammer (1888-1955) is a German painter. He is best known for his landscapes, his still lifes, his nudes and his portraits.
The eldest son of Lieutenant Eugen Gustav Heinrich von Haniel-Niethammer (1852-1935) and Baroness Alma Maria Adolfine von Niethammer (1864-1942), Gerhard von Haniel was born on 19 September 1888 in Sarrebourg, during the first German annexation. The early artistic talent of young Gerhard is encouraged by his parents. After his "Abitur" spent in Cologne, Gerhard von Haniel went to Munich, then to Berlin. There, he takes drawing and painting lessons with Dora Hitz, painter of the royal house of Romania.
In 1907 he also became a pupil of the painter Lovis Corinth, who was then director of a private art school. Gerhard von Haniel travels to Munich to complete his artistic training at the Munich Academy of Fine Arts. From 1928 to 1935, Gerhard von Haniel leads a bohemian life in Paris. He is strongly influenced by the art of Henri Matisse. He also makes study trips to Spain and Italy. Back in Germany, he moved to Munich, then to Tegernsee. The artist will die on February 22, 1955, in Munich.
