About the Artist:
Gogarten studied at the Düsseldorf Art Academy. From 1867 to 1869 he was a student in Oswald Achenbach’s class of landscapists. With his support, he worked in Paris from 1874 to 1877. He then returned to Germany and lived in Hamburg from 1878 to 1889. In the summer of 1889, Gogarten settled in Munich and joined the Dachau Artists’ Colony in 1891. In addition to exhibitions at the Art Academy, Gogarten was also able to exhibit at the Munich Glass Palace. In 1902 he moved to Karlsfeld near Dachau. Since 1880 he had also exhibited at the Berlin Academy Exhibition and from 1899 to 1901 at the Great Berlin Art Exhibition.
Gogarten, who also signed his pictures with Henri Gogarten, liked to paint winter landscapes. He took the motifs, for example, from the heath but also from the Upper Bavarian mountains, the Dachau Moor and the Chiemgau. His paintings are privately owned as well as in the Lübeck collection of paintings, the collection of Prince Leopold of Bavaria or the Dachau Gallery.
