Germany

Vera Singer, born in Berlin to a Jewish family in 1927, inevitably was to have a life shaped by World War II and its aftermath. As Nazi violence in Germany escalated, Vera’s family first emigrated to France and later to Switzerland, where Vera began her formative study of art. When the war ended, she relocated to Munich for further study, eventually returning to the eastern part of a divided Berlin. Her work shares some of the more recognizable features of German Expressionism – the urgent line, angular shapes, bold detail, and a preference for urban subjects. Vera’s mixed media paintings are studies of people in cafés, in the metro, and at home in a city landscape.
