Helga Aichinger IV


A further post about Helga Aichinger an illustrator whose work often appears before me and always amazes. Helga was exiled from Austria to Britain to her aunts in 1939 and was separated at this time from her twin sister Ilse who went to Australia. She married and had a daughter working in a great variety of jobs and even acted in a film. Her work was often in the media of etching, these images are from 'Ein Kornchen fur den Pfau', 1970 written by Josef Guggenmos.
