Jeanne Mammen (1890-1976) - A Life Dedicated to Art
|Date||Wed, Jun 2, 11:00am - 12:00pm|
For 70 of her 86 years, the Berlin artist Jeanne Mammen (1890-1976) worked with her hands and created unique sketches, paintings and sculptures. With the beginning of the Nazi era in 1933, many of their buyers had to leave Germany. Jeanne Mammen emigrated from within and created her works in secret for the next 12 years. Her artwork shows her critical view to the circumstances in which she has to live. Her studio, which she moved into in 1920, still exists today Ku'damm 29 almost unchanged and allows us to come very close to this artist and her work.
