Jankel Adler - Modern Artist
Jankel Adler was born in Lodz, Poland to Jewish parents in 1895. After his studies Adler spent time in Poland, Berlin and Paris then moved to Dusseldorf where he taught alongside his mentor Paul Klee. Adler was forced to leave Germany in 1933, at the height of his success there, because of the rise to power of the Nazis. His paintings were removed from German museums and appeared on the lists of ‘degenerate art’. None of Adler’s nine siblings survived the Holocaust.
