The museum shows an exhibition on four Frankfurt women artists who are almost forgotten today.
In recent years, female artists have repeatedly been brought into focus amongst museum exhibitions. Those who went into exile during the Nazi era and were forgotten from the international art focus of the post-war period (Lotte Laserstein) and / or whose art did not belong to the avant-garde of the post-war period (Ottilie W. Röderstein).
The Jewish Museum Frankfurt sees one of its most important collection focuses to trace, collect and research Frankfurt Jewish artists of the so-called "lost generation". The exhibition makes it its task to duly honor the careers of the artists Erna Pinner (1890, Frankfurt a.M. – 1987, London), Rosy Lilienfeld (1896, Frankfurt a.M. – 1942, Auschwitz), Amalie Seckbach (1870, Hungen – 1944, Theresienstadt) and Ruth Cahn (1870, Hungen – 1944, Theresienstadt) and to locate them in the context of their time.
