Born in 1901, Eva Herrmann was a listed painter, illustrator and graphic
designer. Raised in Munich, Germany, her father was an American painter with
German-Jewish roots and her mother was a Romanian Jew.
She often accompanied her father on trips to New York City, and spent
most of her adult life travelling. She is known for her caricatures that
achieved notoriety when they were published in a book in 1929 titled "On
Parade - A Collection Of Caricatures Of American Authors".
During the rise of Adolph Hitler, she moved to Sanary-sur-Mer where a
circle of like-minded emigrants lived. In the 9140's she moved to Hollywood,
California. Alfred Stieglitz's portrait photograph of Eva Herrmann is in the
Getty Museum collection. She died in 1978.
