Charlotte Salomon: "Life? Or Theater?"

In the early years of World War II, Charlotte Salomon—a 23-year-old Jewish artist from Berlin—fled to the south of France where she shut herself into a hotel room and spent two years feverishly painting the history of her life. She called it "Life? or Theater?: A Play With Music," an astounding body of over 1,300 powerfully drawn and expressively colored gouache paintings conceived as an operetta on paper. Her singular creation and only major work survived her death at Auschwitz and stands as a testament to Salomon’s life and artistic vision. This exhibition of nearly 300 paintings offers a rare, first-hand opportunity to witness this amazing masterpiece. June 19-September 21, 2014.

Charlotte Salomon: "Life? Or Theater?"

In the early years of World War II, Charlotte Salomon—a 23-year-old Jewish artist from Berlin—fled to the south of France where she shut herself into a hotel room and spent two years feverishly painting the history of her life. She called it "Life? or Theater?: A Play With Music," an astounding body of over 1,300 powerfully drawn and expressively colored gouache paintings conceived as an operetta on paper. Her singular creation and only major work survived her death at Auschwitz and stands as a testament to Salomon’s life and artistic vision. This exhibition of nearly 300 paintings offers a rare, first-hand opportunity to witness this amazing masterpiece. June 19-September 21, 2014.
