Angelo Jank (German, 1868-1940)
A German animal painter, illustrator, poster designer and member of the Munich Secession. He attended Simon Hollósy's private art school in Munich before studying (1891-1896) at the Akademie der Bildenden Künste, also in Munich, under Ludwig von Lofftz and Paul Höcker. From 1896 he exhibited at the Munich Secession and he became a member of Die Scholle, founded in 1899.
A regular contributor to the journal Jugend_ and in the forefront of modernism, he made his mark as a humorous illustrator, portraying allegories and scenes from military life. Jank also designed posters (e.g. Underworld, 1896; Berlin, Mus. Dt. Gesch.). He taught at the Damenakademie (1899-1907).
Having come to prominence as a portrayer of events from German history with three monumental paintings for Berlin's Reichstag building (now destroyed) in 1905, he collaborated with Adolf Münzer and Walter Püttner on frescoes (1906) in the Schwurgerichtssaal of the Neuer Justizpalast in Munich. Between 1907 and 1937 he was a professor at the Munich Akademie. (geni.com)
