Known as Gego, Gertrud Goldschmidt (1912–1994) is one of Latin America’s best-known woman artists and became a role model for an entire generation of artists. From 1932 to 1938, Gego studied architecture with Paul Bonatz at the Technical University in Stuttgart. In 1939, as the situation in Germany became increasingly threatening for her due to her Jewish heritage, she immigrated to Caracas. There, after briefly working as an architect and furniture designer, she began making art in 1953.
