Hannelore Baron is best known for her intricate and deeply personal abstract collages and box assemblages. A Holocaust survivor, Baron fled Nazi Germany with her family, eventually moving to New York in the 1940s. She drew from this history, and from her experiences of suffering periodic depression, to produce small-scale mixed-media collages that incorporated torn paper, ink, etchings, and monoprints made from copper sheets. In delicate box constructions, Baron incorporated found materials such as wood and string. She developed her own iconography that included figures, birds, patterns, and hieroglyphics, and fusing the influences of illuminated scripts, musical scores, and Persian miniatures. “Everything I’ve done is a statement on the, as they say, human condition,” Baron once said. Her work has often been compared to that of Kurt Schwitters and Paul Klee.
