Paula Gans

1883 Hronow — 1941 Hamburg

Paula Gans was born in Hronow near Prague in 1883. She and her brother Richard emigrated to Germany in 1920. She joined the Hamburg Artists’ Association and became friends with the painter Hertha Spielberg. In 1932, Gans and Spielberg travelled to Paris and the south of France. Because she was Jewish, life for Gans in Hamburg became more and more restricted, despite her Czech citizenship. Already in 1933, Gans was excluded from the Hamburg Artists’ Association. In 1935, she was forbidden from exhibiting her work in public. She showed her works at the Jewish Cultural Association.
