Eric Isenburger

Eric Isenburger was born on 17 May 1902 in Frankfurt am Main, Germany and died on 26 Mar 1994 in New York City, USA. Exile in France, USA.

After arriving in Paris, Isenburger, after an initial creative crisis, continued his work and broke new ground stylistically by freeing himself from the influence of Viennese Expressionism and its resistance to sgraffito and mezzotint and hereafter considered himself a Neo-Impressionist.

After Eric Isenburger was interned twice in the Les Milles camp, in 1941 the couple managed – via Spain and Lisbon – to escape to America. Here Isenburger became a multi-award-winning artist and was exhibited by several museums and galleries in the United States until the end of the 1950s. After opportunities to exhibit his art began to decline he accepted a teaching position at the National Academy of Design in New York. He worked as a painter until a few years before his death. Isenburger’s oeuvre contains landscapes, still lifes, interiors, and in particular, portraits.

Jula Isenburger was born Elenbogen on 9 Jan 1908 in Augustów, Poland and died on 17 Apr 2000 in New York, USA. Exile in France, USA.

Jula Elenbogen came to Frankfurt as a 16-year-old to become a dancer. In order to continue her dance training she moved in 1928 with her husband, the painter Eric Isenburger, to Vienna. She took lessons in expressionist dance in the dance school Hellerau as well as with Gertrud Kraus.Eric Isenburger designed dance costumes for his wife during this period and in some cases also designed the stage sets for her dance group. In 1931 Jula moved to Berlin to work in Mary Wigman’s dance theatre. When Hitler came to power in 1933 and Eric Isenburger’s art was publicly vilified, the couple left Germany for good. Their first country of exile was France.

In Paris, Jula Isenburger was able to build on her previous success as a dancer. Under the pseudonym Jula Géris she performed with her own program throughout France.  As the political situation worsened with the advance of the German troops, her husband was interned in Les Milles. Having been born in Poland she escaped arrest by the French authorities. After months of uncertainty and waiting, the pair managed to escape in 1941 to the United States. On their arrival there Jula Isenburg ended her dancing career and began working at the Saks Fifth Avenue clothing company. By consciously choosing not to pursue her own career, she allowed her husband to begin his artistic career in America afresh and to work with financial independence.
