Otto Freundlich was an early practitioner of abstract painting and sculpture. As a Jew and modern artist, he was persecuted by the Nazis and killed in 1943.

The art in this section helps tell the story of Otto Freundlich and his connection to my great-grandmother, Anna Blumenfeld and her son, Hans Blumenfeld.
