Introduction by Michael Honecker, Galerie Eric Mouchet, Paris

To mark the start of the Frankfurt galleries' season, the gallery is dedicating a solo presentation to the artist, filmmaker and photographer Ella Bergmann-Michel (1895-1971). Bergmann-Michel's work is considered to be influenced by Dadaism, Surrealism and Bauhaus.

She lived with her husband Robert Michel and two children in Vockenhausen in the Taunus region from 1920 and was a hostess and friend of Willi Baumeister, László Moholy-Nagy and Kurt Schwitters, among others. The exhibition focuses on woodcuts, collages, ink and pencil drawings by the artist from the years 1917 to 1966.
