Margret  Greiner - Charlotte Salomon


The first biography that uses Charlotte Salomon's intensive pictures as the starting point of the narrative.

Who is the young woman who with her paintings took possession of her life with such impressive power and this way defied death?

It is only in recent years, shortly before the approaching anniversary of her birthday 100 years ago, that Charlotte Salomon has increasingly become the focus of public attention again. The artist and writer – murdered by the Nazis in Auschwitz at the age of 26 – left behind an impressive autobiographical œuvre: a series of almost 800 pictures, a story board of her short and tragic life, a kind of "Anne Frank in images".

Margret Greiner has taken this diary in colour as the starting point for her research and placed Salomon's self-portrait in the centre of her narrative biography.

"Greiner has created vivid pictures to tell the biography of an exceptional artist painting against her trauma."
