Ben Uri collection

Work by Pamina Liebert-Mahrenholz

Pamina Liebert studied sculpture in Berlin, winning the Prix de Rome, which Nazi pressure prevented her from collecting. She married photographer Rolf Mahrenholz (1902–91) in 1929 and immigrated to Britain in 1939. She was initially imprisoned in Holloway, then interned on Isle of Man (1940–42). Afterwards she worked as a china restorer, eventually resuming sculpture and taking up painting and drawing. She held several solo shows, including Camden Institute (1977), Ben Uri (1981 and 1988) and Camden Arts Centre (1983); a joint exhibition with Grete Marks was held at the Boundary Gallery, London (2008).
