Art before 1945 - Coming of Age
Ruth Baumgarte received her first impulses and far-reaching influences for her further artistic career from 1941 to 1944 at the State University of Fine Arts in Berlin-Charlottenburg. Gerhard Ulrich imparted her in-depth training in free graphics and drawing in the illustration class. Kurt Wehlte, a specialist in painting techniques, introduces you to painting.
From the very beginning, Ruth Baumgarte has a keen eye for the people and situations in her social environment, takes a close look at the entanglements and conditions of the time and reveals social conditions in her artistic depictions.
