Charlotte Salomon (1917-1943) Salomon was a German Jewish artist who, while hiding from the Nazis in the south of France, created a series of over 700 autobiographical paintings - including the self portrait here - in a two year period. She was deported to Auschwitz in 1943 where she was gassed at the age of 26 while five months pregnant.
