Jeanne  Mammen was one of the most talented artists and illustrators to emerge  from Germany’s Weimar epoch (1919-1933), the period following World War I  that culminated in the rise to power of the Nazis.
At a time when the predominant style was a frequently harsh and  unflattering realism, Mammen dedicated her art to the gently satirical,  sometimes sympathetic, representation of Berlin’s diverse  constituencies, particularly the newly visible lesbian.
