Ludwig Kainer

Ludwig Kainer's Kunst und Mode (Art and Fashion) - A gift from my Grandmother (Oma)
Tags: Fashion Illustration Ludwig Kainer Prints Slideshow

This is a collection of prints by Ludwig Kainer and was given to me by my grandmother, Rosa Bachmann (née Friedmann), a holocaust survivor, who dated it at October 1919. As far as I can remember they were given to her by the artist at a fashion show. My memory of the exact facts is rather sketchy but I do know she 'hung out' with various artists and poets and delighted in my being a punk in the 70's. She likened it to the existentialist movement which was regarded in her day as a way to reassert the importance of human individuality and freedom.

Ludwig Kainer was a German graphic artist, draftsman, painter, illustrator, film architect and costume designer, who worked for the Ballet Russes, the Berlin opera and was briefly married to the artist Lene Schneider-Kainer. Full details can be found on this Wikipedia page.
