Published to complement a traveling exhibition, which debuted at Atlanta's William Brennan Heritage Museum in December 2001, this is the first publication ever to assemble the diverse oeuvre of Friedl Dicker-Brandeis. Part memorial, part biographical document, the catalog examines the artist's life through her many complex human relationships and through her artistic experiments as a student of Bauhaus in Weimar, as a constructivist designer, and later as an inmate of the Theresienstadt concentration camp. Authors Makarova (The Herbs from Odessa) and Seidman-Miller (Simon Wiesenthal Ctr./Museum of Tolerance) ultimately establish Dicker-Brandeis as an early pioneer of art therapy and explore her role as a creative guide to the children interned at Theresienstadt for many a way station en route to Auschwitz, where she actually died. Through the inclusion of previously unseen paintings and drawings as well as the artist's private correspondence, this volume provides a valuable window onto the life and work of a prolific, tremendously influential, and largely underrecognized contemporary of Paul Klee and Bertolt Brecht. It also provides a poignant view of everyday reality in this turbulent period of modern history. Recommended for collections focusing on modern art and biography. Savannah R.
