Jean-Jacques Waltz, alias Hansi or Uncle Hansi, is a French illustrator born in Colmar.
In 1894 his father sent him to Lyon to study industrial drawing, he also studied painting and decorative arts, still in Lyon.
After his stay in Lyon, he returned to Alsace where he became famous as a postcard artist.
The motifs of his illustrations often combine idyllic village scenes with biting anti-German caricatures.
While at first glance his illustrations appear to be innocent scenes of Alsatian life, closer observation reveals a dislike of the Germans that was to become Hansi's trademark.
