About Lotte Laserstein
She received her artistic training at the Berlin Academy being one of the first women to graduate from Berlin Art Academy in 1927. In 1937 Lotte Laserstein, who was Jewish, moved to Sweden. She lived there for the rest of her life. In 2003 a large retrospective of Laserstein’s work was held in Berlin. In-depth research was carried out by Anna-Carola Krausse who created the exhibition catalogue, Lotte Laserstein: My Only Reality.
