About the Artist:
Ida Kerkovius (1879-1970) was born in 1879 in Riga, began to study art seriously in her early 20’s, eventually studying at the Bauhaus in Weimar. There, she became a contemporary of Paul Klee and Wassily Kandinsky while learning the craft of weaving, which she worked in between WWI and WII. Kerkovius was included on the list of degenerate artists by the Nazi regime in 1933 and much of her work prior to WWII was destroyed when her studio in Stuttgart was bombed. After the war, she led a very prolific and successful career before dying in 1970.
