Street named after Lotte Laserstein

    Lotte Laserstein (b. Preussisch Holland, German Empire, 1898 – d. 1993, Kalmar, Sweden) was a German-Swedish painter. She received her artistic training at the Prussian Academy of Arts, which she entered only shortly after female students were allowed. She was an important artist of figurative paintings in Germany’s Weimar Republic. The National Socialist regime and its anti-Semitism forced her to leave Germany in 1937 and to emigrate to Sweden, where she continued to work as a portraitist and painter of landscapes until her death. The paintings she created during the 1920s and 1930s fit into the movement of New Objectivity in Germany. Her painting “Traute Washing” was the first purchase by the National Museum of Women in the Arts with its own funds.
