Käthe Loewenthal

Berlin 1878 — 1942 Izbica

Käthe Loewenthal was born in Berlin, the eldest of five daughters. Her father’s scientific work meant that Käthe’s family travelled often. The Loewenthals were Jewish, but Käthe had herself baptised and confirmed when they lived in Bern between 1892 and 1894. Loewenthal’s interest in art began at an early age. After finishing school, she studied under Ferdinand Hodler until 1897. She made several study trips, on some of which she was joined by her sister Susanne Ritscher. She then moved to Berlin, where from 1903 to 1904 she attended the private painting school run by Leo von König. At this time, she began a close friendship and romantic relationship with the painter Erna Raabe, Countess von Holzhausen.
