MARIE-LOUISE VON MOTESICZKY : PAINTING THE PSYCHOANALYST
Sep 12, 2018 6:30pm - 8:30pm talk/event
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.
 
Part of an exciting series of events which coincide with the exhibition Leaving Today: the Freuds in Exile 1938, on display from 18 July – 30 September 2018.
 
The exhibition includes the first public display of the Psychoanalyst. The Museum is very pleased to add this painting from one of ‘Austria’s most important 20th-century painters’ to its collections.
