Time Out says

Painted while hiding in occupied France from 1941-42, Charlotte Salomon's 'Life? or Theatre?' is an astonishingly beautiful, visceral and personal interrogation of her own life, mind, desires and the spread of Nazism across Europe. Using a bold palette of primary colours, the extensive collection of gouaches (London's Jewish Museum is showing 230 of a possible 700reveal a range of influences, including the Berlin cabaret, Munch and Van Gogh. The artist also preempts the confessional tone used by many female artists and writers right up until today.
