John Hauser 1859-1913

An important Cincinnati artist, John Hauser studied in Munich, Dusseldorf and Paris, developing a kind of thoughtful yet lush realistic style that suited his interest in Indian portraiture and scenes of Native American life. Often overshadowed by fellow Cincinnati native Henry Farny, Hauser more than holds his own. Moreover, Hauser is the genuine article: he made yearly trips West and in 1901 he was adopted into the Sioux nation and given the name “Straight White Shield.”
