Jeanne Mammen (1890-1976) - A Life Dedicated to Art

Ends Jun 2, 2021 at 12:00pm
The Berlin artist Jeanne Mammen (1890-1976) is best known for her depictions of strong, sensual women and Berlin city life. But there is much more to her 70 years of artistic output, with unique sketches, paintings and sculptures. Her studio on Kurfürstendamm 29, which she occupied from 1920 until the end of her life, is almost unchanged and allows us to come very close to this artist and her work.
