Biography  
Erika Lohmann


Biography from the Archives of askART

Erika Lohmann apparently died in 1984 in Connecticut.  In early life she had been one of the six Isadora Duncan Dancers, the youngest of the students accepted into the first Duncan school in 1904 in Germany. She left Duncan and the group in 1920 to pursue visual art.  Lohmann studied in New York with Winhold Reiss, with whom she was also personally involved.  After his death she converted to Roman Catholicism, devoting her art to spiritual themes. 

Lohmann seems to have been a reclusive and private person who resisted contact, most particularly with anyone interested in her early life as a disciple of Isadora Duncan.  However, after Lohmann's death in 1984, Duncan scholar Lillian Loewenthal was able to discover the information from which I have drawn the above synopsis.
