Painting by Felix Nussbaum

As the Nazis took hold of Germany and began to control all aspects of social life, Nussbaum realized he would not make it as a Jewish artist living in Berlin. He and his wife, Felka, were forced to spend 10 years in exile, launching Nussbaum into an emotional and artistic isolation. Nussbaum and Felka were eventually captured by the Nazis, and died in Auschwitz.
