Tilla Durieux

A Witness to a Century and Her Roles

Tilla Durieux was a celebrated star of the film and theatre, a modern woman of the 1920s, politically active and perhaps the most portrayed woman of her time.

Her roles were as varied as the artists for whom she posed as a model, among them Auguste Renoir, Max Slevogt, Lovis Corinth, Franz von Stuck, Charley Toorop, Ernst Barlach, Oskar Kokoschka, Max Oppenheimer and the photographers Lotte Jacobi and Frieda Riess.

Featuring rarely exhibited archival material the catalogue highlight Durieux’s career, her social and artistic milieu as well as her life shaped by political upheaval.
