Title: Emy Roeder Poster

Description: Original poster for Emy Roeder exhibition at the Hessischer Landesmuseum Darmstadt in Darmstadt, Germany. Pictured is a sculpture piece from Roeder’s collection. The piece is made of a stone base with bronze and dark patina. Emy Roeder was a German sculptor known for her contributions to the German Expressionist Movement of Modern art. She was the first woman ever to receive a Master's Student degree in sculpture at the Berlin Academy. In 1937, along with many others, her work was seized by the Nazis for being "un-German." The Nazi regime took famous works such as Pregnant Woman. After WWII, Roeder was arrested by allies in Italy for being German and sent to a camp. At the internment camp in Padula, she oversaw the women's bathhouses. Here, Roeder created many sketches of the women and their movements within the showers. Upon release, she went back to Rome, creating a series of bronze relief sculptures. The sketches from her time in the camps helped her create these intimate masterpieces. Reorder returned to Germany in 1040, as her application for Italian citizenship was denied. In Germany, she began to receive more recognition for her work and even taught in Landeskunstschule. Before her death on February 7th of 1971, she was able to see the impact her work had on the artistic world.
