Josef Danhauser is one of the most important painters from the Biedermeier period. His images humorously capture humanity’s minor and major weaknesses.

They are usually based on a quote from the Bible or a work of world literature and Danhauser transports its content into his own times. In addition, his works are a document of contemporary lifestyles and interior design, as the painter liked to include the latest creations from the Danhauser furniture factory.

The analysis of Josef Danhauser’s development as a painter and description of his life is complemented by a catalogue raisonné of all his known paintings and drawings with over 554 entries and illustrations (where available).
