Johanna Ey (sculpture in Düsseldorf's Spee'scher Park)

Biography

German art dealer during the 1920s. She became known as Mutter Ey (Mother Ey) for the nurturing support she provided to her artists, who included Max Ernst and Otto Dix. She defended Gert Heinrich Wollheim and Dix when they were hauled into court on charges that their paintings were immoral. According to art historian Sergiusz Michalsky, "Johanna Ey's portrait was painted more often than that of any other woman in Germany." She died on 27 August 1947.
