Johann Valentin Haidt

(1700-1780), Artist

Artist associated with 2 portraits
Johann Haidt was born in Danzig, Germany. He joined the Moravian community of Herrnhaag, Germany in 1740 and soon began to produce oil paintings for the Moravians. In 1754 Haidt, one of the first colonial American painters to treat religious subjects, arrived in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. He resided in Bethlehem, except when he was away on church work, until his death in 1780. His extant paintings, all done under the auspices of the Moravian church, include Biblical scenes, portraits, and historical canvases.
