Elsa Baroness von Freytag-Loringhoven (1894-1927)

Elsa Baroness von Freytag-Loringhoven (née Else Hildegard Plötz; 12 July 1874 – 14 December 1927) was a German-born avant-garde visual artist and poet, who was active in Greenwich Village, New York, from 1913 to 1923, where her radical self-displays came to embody a living Dada. Using her own life and elaborate props, she created art and performances. Living the life of a poor artist, she supported herself by factory jobs, jobs as an artist model and occational sex work.
