artistic achievements of women artists in Austria in the first half of the
twentieth century have generally either been utterly forgotten or have only
received scant recognition. In so many cases these women were forced to
flee the country from the Nazi regime after 1938 because of their "race”.
In addition female artists faced prejudice because of their gender. The
aim of this project is to research the life and work of these unjustly forgotten
artists and to track down their missing works of art. The success of this
project hinges on unearthing undiscovered or forgotten information.
If you have information about the artists, documents about their lives (e.g. letters, photos, oral history), know of relevant artworks in museums, galleries or private collections or even own one of their works yourself, I would be delighted to hear from you:
