according to DANIEL REICH, Birgit Megerle was influenced in part, by German painting of the 1920s, & in particular by CHRISTIAN SCHAD.
By coincidence, one could have seen some examples of this early 20th century
German painting at the MET, at about the same time, in a small but brilliant exhibit:
‘GLITTER AND DOOM’ – German Portraits from the 1920s.
(Nov 14 – Feb 19, 2007)
