Notes

Adolf Lins embarked on an artistic journey at Kunsthochschule Kassel in Germany, studying under renowned painters like Friedrich Müller, Eduard Ihlée, August Bromeis, and Eduard Stiegel from 1872 to 1875. His passion for painting led him to the picturesque village of Willingshausen in Schwalm in 1874.

In 1877, Lins relocated to Düsseldorf, where he joined the Malkasten Artists’ Association and contributed to the cultural scene, writing plays and poems. He cofounded the Free Association of Düsseldorf Artists in 1891 and served on the board of the Düsseldorfer Kunsthalle from 1902 to 1906.

Notably, Lins established an artists’ colony in Röllshausen in 1908, becoming a mentor to younger painters and fostering a sense of unity. His oeuvre, characterised by vibrant landscapes and expressive brushwork, earned him the nickname ‘Gänse-Lins’ due to his penchant for depicting chickens, ducks, and geese.
