Hanns Hubertus Graf von Merveldt

Coesfeld 1901 — 1969 Hamburg

Hanns Hubertus was born in Coesfeld in 1901, the son of Imperial Count Reinhard von Merveldt, Baron von Lembeck, and Alice, née Baroness von Beck. In 1920  he began an apprenticeship as a house painter in Münster. He then enrolled at the Baden State Art School and became a master student of August Babberger. In 1924, Merveldt settled in Berlin as a freelance artist. He was able to exhibit in the Salon Gurlitt. Merveldt settled in Paris in 1928, where he got to know Heidi Lenssen. She became his student and his life partner. He was also in close contact with Eugen Spiro and Rudolf Levy at this time. He participated in exhibitions at the Academy of Arts and at the Berlin Art Association, and joined the Berlin Secession. In 1932, Merveldt was awarded the Rome Prize that enabled him to spend a year in the Villa Massimo, from 1933 to 1934. During this time, he became embroiled in a violent dispute with Felix Nussbaum, after which they both had to leave the Villa.
