Peter Lanz Hohnstedt

      Peter Lanz Hohnstedt (1871-1957) was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, where he received his early art training from Frank Duvenek.

    About 1914, Hohnstedt moved to New Orleans, which he was asked to do a painting for the Delgado Museum. The results were immediate and profitable. A wealthy man provided him with a room on his yacht so he could find greater opportunity to visit and study the swamp areas of Louisiana. He and artist Clarence Millet painted together in Louisiana and Mississippi.

    P.L. Hohnstedt moved to Comfort, Texas in 1928 and had a studio in San Antonio. He exhibited at the Witte Museum (Edgar B. Davis Competition) in 1929 and won two awards, with such competition as Dawson Dawson-Watson, E. Martin Hennings, O.E. Berninghaus, Jose Arpa and a host of others. He continued to exhibit throughout the 30's and 40's with several one-man shows.

    Later he moved his home and studio to downtown Comfort, Texas, where his studio was open daily to visitors. His guest book included visitors from around the country.

    Peter Hohnstedt preserved on canvas many of the beautiful surroundings of Comfort, Texas in the heart of the Hill Country. His paintings included the twisting oaks, cypress and hillsides surrounding the small community.
