Hans Blum studied at the Munich Academy of Fine Arts with Ludwig von Löfftz and Ludwig Lindenschmit the Younger. He first worked as a portraitist in Nuremberg but later turned to genre painting, which he often carried out in the style of plein-air painting. Blum exhibited his Italian alpine landscapes widely and with success including at the Munich Exposition of 1909. He was also a respected teacher and was later appointed to a professorship at the Munich School of Applied Arts. Blum's work may be found in private and public collections including two works held in the permanent collection of the Nuremberg Art Museum.
