Hanna Bekker vom Rath

1893 Frankfurt am Main — 1983 Bad Nauheim

Johanna (Hanna) Bekker vom Rath received drawing and painting lessons at an early age, studying under Marie Paquet-Steinhausen in her studio at the Städel in Frankfurt am Main. From 1913 onwards, Bekker vom Rath studied under Ottilie W. Roederstein. In 1921 she bought a house in Hofheim am Taunus that became known as the Blue House on account of its colour, and which later became a refuge for persecuted artists and intellectuals. Bekker vom Rath often travelled to Berlin and was interested in the art of the avant-garde. She built a studio adjoining her house in Hofheim, and many persecuted artists used it as a temporary working space in the 1930s.
