Hans Meyer’s fa­ther wanted him to go to law school. Hans said, many years later, “Ever since I was a boy, I wanted to be a painter.” His fa­ther’s wishes pre­vailed and he at­tended law school—for three months. He left and went to Mu­nich to be­gin his art ed­u­ca­tion. He suc­ceeded so well in his ca­reer that Ger­man Em­peror Wil­helm II awarded him the ti­tle of “pro­fes­sor” for the por­trait he had painted of the Em­peror’s niece in 1917. His home town of Kas­sel hon­ored him by al­low­ing him to ap­pend the city’s name to his own.
