Jeanne Mammen (1890 - 1976)

[K] Despite my fondness for photography, I find myself enthralled by these paintings that capture the energy of Berlin’s lesbian subculture at its finest…

(I’m might get nostalgic again for something I never experienced - but it’s hard not too - they all look gorgeous, defiant and fierce in the best possible way.)

In case you - like me until ca. 48 hours ago - are not quite familiar with the creator of these art works, how’s this for an introduction:

Jeanne Mammen was one of the most talented artists and illustrators to emerge from Germany’s Weimar epoch (1919-1933), … At a time when the predominant style was a frequently harsh and unflattering realism, Mammen dedicated her art to the gently satirical, sometimes sympathetic, representation of Berlin’s diverse constituencies, particularly the newly visible lesbian.
