Kate (Käte) Hoch (1873-1933)

"She is an exponent of  'Neue Sachlichkeit' or 'New Objectivity' tendency that emerged during the years of the Weimar Republic in Germany.  After the destruction caused by the First World War, many artists began to closely and critically re-examine their surroundings.  Rejecting what they saw as the distortions and irrationality of Expressionism, the 'New Objectivity' that Gustav Friedrich Hartlaub outlined in his era-defining exhibition of 1925 involved an unsentimental approach to subject matter, the elimination of all painterly or expressive brushwork and a conscious and clear-minded return to the object and objective reality.  It was, as he wrote, the 'discovery of things after the crisis of the ego' (G. F. Hartlaub, Neue Sachlichkeit, exh. cat., Mannheim, 1925).
Most of Hoch's work was either destroyed by the Nazis when they came to power in 1933, the year of the artist's death, or has since disappeared.  As a consequence, very little is known about Hoch's life.  

Born in Zwiesel in 1873, she lived in Paris and later Munich and it was possibly there that she met the writer Oskar Maria Graf, the artist Georg Schrimpf and other members of the Neue Secession."
