Lili Rethi

Lili Rethi was a printmaker and illustrator who specialized in scenes of industry, bridges, dams, and skyscrapers. From 1911-1917, she studied at the Art School for Women and Girls and at the School of Graphic and Experimental Art in Vienna. She had numerous commissions in European cities and exhibited her work in Vienna and Berlin, where she lived in 1929. In 1939, Rethi was invited to become an artist of the Third Reich by Herman Goering. She was not enamored with the politics of the Nazi regime and made a request to finish work on a bridge in Denmark. She never returned to Berlin and emigrated to the United States, taking residence in New York City. Rethi became heavily active illustrating industrial scenes during the 1940's and 1950's.
