HANS NIEHUUS (German, XX a.k.a. Hans Niehaus)
“Mother and child”, 1937
painting on canvas.
Niehuus appears in this 1937 painting (left picture) way more moderate and traditional than in his earlier work „The Harlekin Girl“.

Hans Niehuus, „Harlekin Girl“, 1920s, (in the collection).

Hans Niehuus remains a mystery. He probably can be seen as author of the aquarelle „Prolet“, former Fishman Collection, signed Hermann Niehaus, too.

Several other works from the same source as the present „Mother and child“ are documented, signed „Hermann“, „Hans“ and „Niehaus“ .
