Lilo Gwosdz was an Austrian portraitist, who also had a celebrated career as a fashion and advertising photographer. Meidner’s typically free brush work can be seen in the background behind her and in the patchwork colouring that makes up her elegant dress. Ludwig Meidner was born in Germany in 1884 and studied in Berlin and Paris, initially working as a fashion illustrator. In 1912 he began a series of ‘apocalyptic’ landscapes, which anticipated the carnage of the First World War.
