My portrait of Anna Blumenfeld as a child.

She was a close friend to Otto Freundlich and financed his art career. She owned his "Der Neue Mensch" sculpture which was donated to the art museum in Hamburg by her son Hans when Anna died in 1929. The sculpture was then confiscated from the museum and included in Hitler's "Degenerate Art" exhibition of 1937.
