Lou Albert-Lasard

French , 1885 - 1969

Born in Metz, Germany in 1885, Lou Albert-Lasard later relocated to France following World War II. A Jewish woman, Albert-Lasard was interned with her daughter at the Nazi concentration camp, Gurs. Her work is representative of the ways in which her life changed, beginning with that reflecting her internment at Gurs in her early German Expressionist work and later, her life in Paris in her Social Realist works. While the body of Albert-Lasard's work at Gurs was watercolors and drawings, she worked primarily in lithographs later in Paris.
