“Above all, people are worth to be painted. But what kind of being is that?"

was the artistic credo of the Nuremberg painter and graphic artist Dore Meyer-Vax, who in the 1920s, among others, studied with Max Körner in Nuremberg and with Rudolf Emil Weiß and Karl Hofer in Berlin.

About the product

After 1945, she first addressed the experience of National Socialism and the Second World War in symbols of destroyed cities and traumatized people. At the end of the 1960s, Meyer-Vax turned increasingly to contemporary events and created an impressive oeuvre of political graphics. In addition, mother-and-child scenes became a preferred motif for the artist who remained childless. Dore Meyer-Vax also worked in the field of art in architecture.

The richly illustrated catalog documents for the first time the work of an artist who remained loyal to figuration as an expression of political creative drive throughout her life.
