HANNA (HIRSCH) PAULI
Photographer unknown, Hanna Pauli, ¸n.d
Hanna Pauli trained at the Royal Swedish Academy of Fine Arts, where she met Eva Bonnier. The two met again in Paris at the Académie Colarossi and became housemates. Pauli remained in Paris from 1885 to 1887 and submitted a portrait of Finnish artist Venny Soldan to the 1887 Salon (on view in the exhibition). After marrying fellow artist Georg Pauli, the couple eventually returned to Sweden, where she concentrated primarily on portraiture. She won a third-class medal at the 1889 Exposition Universelle.
