Join us for an evening marking the generous gift to the Freud Museum London of the ‘Psychoanalyst’ a painting by artist Marie-Louise von Motesiczky from the Marie-Louise von Motesiczky Charitable Trust, with a drinks reception followed by a talk by art historian, Ines Schlenker.

Born into a prominent Jewish family in Vienna in 1906, Marie-Louise von Motesiczky left Austria the day after the Anschluss and eventually settled in London. This talk traces her artistic career – from promising beginnings to the struggle of rebuilding a reputation in exile – and explores the Motesiczky family’s numerous connections with psychoanalysis.

Ines Schlenker is an independent art historian with a special interest in National Socialist, degenerate and émigré art. She wrote the catalogue raisonné of Marie-Louise von Motesiczky’s paintings, published in 2009, and co-edited the painter’s correspondence with the writer Elias Canetti. Her book on the artist Milein Cosman will be published later this year.
