Heinrich Emil Adametz

1884 Düsseldorf (?) — 1971 (?) Berlin

We have little information about the life of Heinrich Emil Adametz. After working as a cabin boy, he trained as a naval architect and later did an apprenticeship as an ornamental painter. He then studied at the schools of arts and crafts in Hamburg and Altona, and from 1904 to 1906 at the Stuttgart State Academy of Fine Arts, where his teachers were Adolf Hölzel and Leopold von Kalckreuth. Afterwards, Adametz moved to Berlin. In 1914, he married Johanna Michaelis, the daughter of a wealthy Jewish estate agent. Johanna’s parents regarded this penniless artist as unbefitting of their social status and tried to prevent the marriage. Johanna ignored their wishes and was shunned by them. After the Nazis seized power in 1933, Adametz was barred from his profession on account of being “related by marriage to a Jew”.
