Louise Fraenkel-Hahn (1878-1939)
Jewish painter and printmaker. Known from less than a handful of fine flower bouquets prints reminding of the prints by Hugo Noske. Fled from Nazi Germany she tragically died of pneumonia while in exile in Paris. Her husband later was seized, deported and murdered by the Nazis. This exceptionally fine, extremely rare and wonderful example was found in England in a charity shop. It will probably have travelled as a cherished work art are personal remembering of of more happy days with refugee Jewish Germans to England.
Like so many fine artists in this collection her name has become obscured in history.
Semmering (70 km South-West of Vienna).

1914: the year of the Leipzig BUGRA.
Extremely rare example and print.
(Amalie) Marianne Baronin (Freiin) von Buddenbrock
(Magdeburg 01-07-1864 – after 1943)
Painter and printmaker. Living and working in Berlin. She signed her prints with a monogram MvB and Marianne v. Buddenbrock. Member of the VdBK 1901-1916, in which archives she is mentioned to be related to Julie von Buddenbrock* (1824-1915) who is mentioned in “Kunstfreundin des VdBK” 1867-1914. 10 very fine prints showing flowers are known, edition numbers 50, 100, 150.
Five of them were included in the 1919 Wohlgemuth & Lissner catalogue of “Moderne Graphik”. A print exhibited 1914 in Leipzig BUGRA titled “Rosen” may be print no. 10 (without picture).
No. 1523: “Chrysanthemen” 23,5 x 22,5 cm. (edition?); No. 1592: “Weiße Astern” (31,5 x 29,5 cm. (edition of 50); No. 1708:“Osterblumen” (31,5 x 29 cm. (edition of 75); No. 1888 “Kresse”, 22x 31 cm. (edition of 100); No. 1953 “Primeln” (26 x 24,5 cm. (edition of 150).
The biography of printmaker Marianne von Buddenbrock (mentioned as member of the VdBK) and her distantly related aunt and painter Julie von Buddenbrock is most probably mixed up with her namesake Marie von Buddenbrock (1883-1979) in “Lexicon Schleswick-Hollsteiner Künstlerinnen” by Prof. Dr. Ulrike Wolff-Thomsen.
Student of landscape painter and printmaker Peter Paul Müller (Berlin 1853- 1930 Munich) in Munich and graphic artist Ernst Neumann (1871-1954) in Berlin (mentioned in the “Allgemeines Künstler-Lexikon 1922”).
She was represented at the 1914 Leipzig BUGRA in “Das Haus der Frau” with a woodblock titled “Rosen” of which I have not been able to find an example. It belonged to the private collection of Ellen von Siemens-von Helmholtz who lent some 25 German and 25 British graphic works by women artists to the exhibition. A print titled “Rosen” would make 10 known prints by Marianne von Buddenbrock.
