Ludwig Jonas

1887 Bromberg — 1942 Jerusalem

Ludwig Jonas was born in 1887 in Bromberg, what was then Eastern Prussia. After taking his final exams, he went to Munich around 1907/08, intending to study medicine. But amid the many museums of the city, including the Pinakotheken and Glyptothek, he began to develop an intense interest in art, especially in the work of Franz von Lenbach, Arnold Bocklin and Franz von Stuck. He decided to become an artist after visiting Freiburg im Breisgau, where his friend Franz Rosenzweig was a medical student (Rosenzweig later became known as a religious philosopher).
