Karl Yens Art

KARL YENS (GERMANY, 1868–1945)

Karl Yens was born in Altona, Germany, on January 11, 1868. He later studied with Max Koch in Berlin and with Benjamin Constant and Jean-Paul Laurens in Paris. He was active as a muralist in Germany and Edinburgh, Scotland, before coming to the U.S. in 1901. During the first decade in his adopted country, he fulfilled mural commissions in NYC and Washington, D.C. After settling in southern California in 1910, Yens was active in Los Angeles and Pasadena before moving to Laguna Beach in 1918. His studio still stands there on South Coast Highway near Ruby Street. Yens died there in 1945. A versatile painter, his oeuvre includes portraits, still lifes, landscapes, genre subjects and many studio figure studies. Equally facile with oil and watercolor, his work is distinguished by its bold, colorful and decorative style.
