The artists’ association that was Das Junge Rheinland is generally associated with male artists. It is believed that women were not involved in the association – wrongly, because female artists were part of the group, but by now they are virtually unknown or have fallen into oblivion. As part of HHU Düsseldorf’s research project, art historian Dr. Jens-Henning Ullner consults local Rhineland archives, visiting the August-Macke-Haus in Bonn and the Rheinische Archiv für Künstlernachlässe, in order to find out more about female artists and gallery owners such as Johanna Ey, Amely Dannemann, Lotte Prechner, Marta Worringer and Irma Goecke.
