This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

The following recollections were submitted by W. Busch:

Between 1966 and 1970 I lived in Darmstadt, Germany as a engineering student and shared the house court with Elisabeth.  She lived in an medium brick stone 2 level house surrounded by an enormous garden and inside the walls were covered entirely by paintings by her and her friends from Prague, her hometown.
 
She had fled from the Russian invasion and settled at Rosenhoehe, the artists main colony in Darmstadt( Jugendstil center), right at the edge of the colony.
 
Her original name, as she told me, was different and became Geyer through a marriage.  But as Geyer was to common, she added a revers PRAHA (Aharp) for marketing reasons.

Ernst Barlach gave her a small wooden sculpture of the famous Angel.

Her paintings were heavily influenced by the Prague School and overall deeply colorful.  She was a great portraitist and everybody whom she appreciated, was painted in oil on the most selected canvas.

Our afternoon tea-sessions were entirely dedicated to philosophical discussions of the post-war changes taking place in those times.

When I left Germany, I lost every trace but I remember her huge library gathered again after the war and brought by friends from Prague.
