Description

Margarete 'Grete' Marks,
German 1899-1990 - 

Young Woman, c.1939; 

watercolour on paper, signed and dated lower right, 36.9 x 22.3 cm (ARR) 

Provenance: 
Boundary Gallery, London 

Exhibited: 
Tate Britain, London, 'The Bauhaus and Britain', 15 June – 17 November 2019 (label attached to the reverse) 

Note: 
this wonderful work suggests the style and power of the 'Neue Frau' of Berlin in the Interwar years. The artist was part of Walter Gropius's celebrated Bauhaus school, where she studied ceramics, despite the opposition of male staff members. The artist fled Nazi oppression in the 1930s for Britain, through the patronage of Ambrose Heal, where she became a key member of Mintons pottery in Stoke-on-Trent. Following the Second World War she focused more fully on painting, exhibiting alongside major figures of British art such as Ben Nicholson and John Piper at the Redfern Gallery and and Roland, Browse & Delbanco. More recently she has been the subject of a retrospective at Pallant House Gallery in 2019 and the display at Tate Britain which also featured work by Wells Coates and Naum Gabo. 

The artist is also known as Margarete Heymann and Margarete Heymann-Loebenstein.
