MAX LINGNER

Max Lingner (1888-1959)

“Mademoiselle Yvonne”, 1939.

The portrait of Mademoiselle Yvonne, painted in 1939 by Max Lingner, a German resident of Paris since 1928, is a striking testimony to the courage of women in the French resistance. Yvonne was a member of the communist “Union des Jeunes Filles de France” and worked as an underground courier in the occupied Paris. Like many of her sisters-in-struggle, Yvonne was arrested, tortured and deported to Auschwitz, where she died in 1943.
