Born in Brühl in 1878, Richard Bloos was trained as a painter at the famous Düsseldorf art academy. In 1906 he moved to Paris, where he joined artists' circles of Montmartre and Montparnasse. His introduction to French Impressionism was crucial to his artistic development. Eight years later he finally returned to Düsseldorf. In Bloos's work, the mundane Parisian city life dominates, which he captured in figures, portraits, genre scenes and cityscapes. He painted, preferably 'en plein air', boulevards, parks, markets, cafes, dance halls and concerts. After his return to Germany, these remained his favorite subjects. He is one of the most famous representatives of the modern Düsseldorf School (after 1900).
