Little is known about Elisabeth (Liesbeth) Ronget-Bohm. Her dates of birth and death are also given variously in the sources. She came from a Jewish family, being the daughter of Salomon Bohm and his wife Margarete Bohm, née Spanier. She was born in Konitz (today Chojnice) in what was then Western Prussia, but grew up in Hanover. Her artistic talent became evident while she was still a child, so her parents sent her to train at the Vienna Academy of Arts; she later moved to Berlin. She then studied at the Bauhaus in Weimar before moving back to Berlin in 1926, where she became acquainted with the artists of the November Group and Der Blaue Reiter. The political situation in Germany compelled her to move to Paris in 1931.
There she studied at the Académie de la Grande Chaumière. In order to earn money, she worked in the applied arts. In this she was successful, and she designed textiles and advertising posters for French fashion houses. It was also in Paris that she met the medical doctor Paul (Georges?) Ronget, whom she married. In 1934, Ronget-Bohm exhibited together with Lhote at the Salon d’Automne, and a series of further exhibitions followed. After the Germans occupied Paris, Ronget-Bohm moved to the Provence in 1941. Her parents were deported to the Theresienstadt Ghetto, where they were killed in 1942/43.
