Adolf Hirémy-Hirschl born 1860 in Timișoara. Timișoara is now in Romania but was considered part of Hungary when Adolf Hirémy-Hirschl born.
Adolf Hirémy-Hirschl died in 1933.
Adolf Hirémy-Hirschl found a profitable niche painting scenes from ancient mythology. Many of his existing paintings are murky scenes depicting the River Styx and the afterlife. The themes have not aged well.
Most of what he painted does not appeal to me but I respect a man who does what he must to pay his bills.
One must wonder if he would be more popular today if he had painted more outside of his chosen niche.
