Anneliese Everts
(1908 — 1967)

Born in Solingen-Widdert, Everts brought poetry and vitality to post-war Germany. Everts trained at the College in Hohscheid Solingen practising drawing, painting and occasionally modelling. Following her cruise to the Mediterranean in 1928, Everts travelled to Italy, Austria, Switzerland and the Baltic Sea. Everts started working as a free-lance graphic designer and later studied at the Folkwang School in Essen in 1937. By 1938, Everts was exhibiting annually at Solinger and Bergischer. She became part of various art groups including; BBK, the Community Solinger artist and the GEDOK Cologne. Everts thirst for life and curiosity with foreign countries made her work unique and she is remembered since her death in 1967.
