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.

Dannenberg produced landscapes, street scenes, still lives, and genre scenes primarily in oils.  She was particularly adept at genre scenes of children, which was a favorite among art collectors of the 19th century.  One of her better known paintings is  Learning to Skate, a painting of young children ice skating.  She also painted children in other genre settings and painted a number of paintings of children in the various public parks in Paris.

Alice Dannenberg of Russian descent, was born in Riga, Latvia in 1861 and died in 1948.  She spent most of her career working in Paris, France; Karlsruhe, Germany, and her hometown of Riga.  She was well traveled, painting all over Europe.  Her work was shown in such exhibits as the Salon d’ Automne, the Salon aux Independents, and the Salon de la Nationale.

On April 22,1905 the New York Times carried an article reviewing the Salon aux Independents and her work is mentioned along with that of Matisse, Seurat, Van Gogh, and Herve.  She is identified in the article as a "street scene painter, a Russian woman".
