Karl Hagedorn, RBA RI RSMA NEAC NS (1889-1969)

German born Karl Hagedorn made a consciously pioneering attempt to introduce Modernism to Manchester through his work as a painter and designer.

Karl Hagedorn was born in Berlin on 11 September 1889, and brought up in Freiburg im Breisgau. He went to Manchester in 1905 to train in textile production and also studied art under Adolph Valette at the local school of art. His development into a Modernist artist was achieved in Paris, in 1912-13, when, working under Maurice Denis, he absorbed a range of avant-garde styles. On his return to England, he made a consciously pioneering attempt to introduce Modernism into Manchester through his work as both painter and designer. He became a British subject (1914) and served as a Lance-corporal in the Middlesex regiment during the First World War (1916-19).
