Description

A scene of domestic industry is tinged with humor in this depiction of a crowded room full of cleaning women in their work attire, the center figure bent to the task with the bustle of her dress in the air.

As with many German Expressionist artists at the time, Wimmer’s work was labeled “degenerate” by the Nazi’s in the 1930s, owning to its lack of approved classical technique and themes; subsequently, they destroyed much of her work. “Frauen bei der Arbeit” is one such work that survived.
