This major exhibition by German-Jewish artist Charlotte Salomon presents one of the most important and powerful modernist achievements of the 20th century.

The exhibition features over 200 small gouaches on paper which Salomon created as part of a larger body of work in the early 1940s when in hiding from Nazi oppressors. These remarkable gouaches unveil a vivid self-portrait spanning across all facets of Salomon’s existence: from a complicated family life, growing up in Berlin, the rise of the Nazis, to her exile to France.

Explore Charlotte Salomon’s extraordinary story and her ground-breaking work, which combines creative force with personal narrative.
