1940 – 1955
This scrapbook, annotated by Virginia, covers the first years of their marriage until 1955. Along with photos taken during the construction of the studio in Worcester and Paul’s early watercolors, the scrapbook contains many items related to the European art scene. Photos of artists such as Willi Baumeister, Hans Hartung, Karl Hartung, Erich Heckel, Ida Kerkovius, Ewald Mataré, Emy Roeder, and others are included, taken in times of leisure or social activity at either the Fontaines’ apartments in Frankfurt and Darmstadt, or at the artists’ studios. Images of exhibitions in which Paul Fontaine’s paintings were shown are also included.
