Regard! Art and Design by Women 1880–1940

From over 20,000 objects in the Bröhan-Museum, only about 1,500 are by women – around 7.5%. Nearly 1,000 male artists in contrast to 99 female artists are represented in the collection. Why is there such a disparity? And who were those women who decided to pursue a career, despite all the adversities, as a woman artist or designer in the late 19th and early 20th centuries? Based on these questions, the Bröhan-Museum dedicates for the first time an exhibition to the women artists of the collection: painters of the Berlin Secession such as Maria Slavona and Julie Wolfthorn, artists of the Wiener Werkstätte such as Vally Wieselthier and Hilda Jesser, sculptors such as Chana Orloff, ceramists such as Margarete Heymann-Loebenstein and Ursula Fesca, as well as silversmiths, glassmakers and designers of furniture, porcelain and textiles. …”
