The 1930s brought a remarkable group of German refugees to the United States whose contributions shaped the cultural and scientific life of mid-20th century America. Elizabeth Korn (1900-1979) was one such artist. Born in Breslau, she fled Nazi Germany with her husband and son in 1939. Settling in Jersey City, she continued to work as a portraitist and illustrator, joining the faculty at Drew University in New Jersey in the 1940s. Korn’s art has been in a number of solo exhibitions in Europe and in New York galleries. Her works are in private collections, at Drew, and the Whitney Museum. Her papers are in the Archives of American Art. This exhibition is curated by Larry Qualls and features a number of her works on loan from private collections.
When: Ongoing through March 18. Gallery hours are Tuesday, Saturday & Sunday 1-4 PM
