Two Female Nudes
Pamina Liebert-Mahrenholz was born Berlin, Germany. Liebert-Mahrenholz studied sculpture in Berlin and won the Prix de Rome but was prevented from receiving it by the Nazis. She married photographer Rolf Mahrenholz (1902–91) in 1929 and emigrated to Britain in 1939. She was initially imprisoned in Holloway, then interned on Isle of Man (1940–42). Afterwards she worked as a china restorer, eventually resuming sculpture and taking up painting and drawing. She held several solo shows, including Camden Institute (1977), Ben Uri (1981) and Camden Arts Centre (1983) and a joint exhibition with Margaret Marks was held at the Boundary Gallery, London (September 2008). Her work is represented in the Ben Uri collection.
