Nathalie Kraemer

Born in Paris, France (1891 or 1883 - ?)

Very little is known about Nathalie Kraemer, whose paintings have a distinct and powerful spiritual quality. A poet as well as a painter, Kraemer published two collections of poems in 1927 called "Rising Voices," for which she was awarded a literary prize. Painting, however, was her preferred medium, as she found its expressive power greater than that of poetry. Her work, which was saved and preserved by a collector named Graziani, seems to have been particularly abundant between the years 1936 and 1938.

When the war broke out, Kraemer went into hiding and continued painting. She was arrested and deported to Auschwitz in 1943.
