Dörte Helm (Self-portrait)


German Bauhaus artist, a painter and graphic designer, whose oeuvre also includes drawings, woodcuts, tapestries and woodwork.

Dörte Helm was a daughter of the classical philologist Rudolf Helm (1872–1966) and his Jewish wife Alice Caroline (nee Bauer, 1873–1947).

Her teachers included Johannes Itten, Lyonel Feininger, Oskar Schlemmer, Georg Muche and Bauhaus founder Walter Gropius.

In 1930 she married the journalist Heinrich Heise (1899–1944). In Hamburg on 24 February 1941 she died of an infectious disease at age 42.

One hundred years after the founding of the Bauhaus, the German six-part television series Die Neue Zeit was created in 2019 under the direction of Lars Kraume, in which Dörte Helm, played by Anna Maria Mühe, was interspersed with many fictional elements.
