Painter and peace activist

Jacobi, the niece of Adolph Menzel was a member of the Berlin Secession, the Association of Berlin Women Artists, the Prussian Academy of Arts and a founding member of the League for Human Rights and the Women’s League for Peace and Freedom. From the 1920s onwards, she portrayed working women, artists and political activists in Germany and the USA, where she emigrated to in 1933. In addition to portrait painting, Jacobi devoted herself to still life painting as well as nudes and landscapes.


Victoria Hohmann-Vierheller studied art history at the Free University of Berlin. She is an author, editor and text artist and wrote her master’s thesis on Annot Jacobi, on whom she is currently conducting research.
