Biographical / Historical
Maria Lowenstein was born Maria Lilli Margarete Baetge in Estonia. She fled from the Russian Revolution and moved to Berlin in 1914. In 1925, Maria married the Jewish German dermatologist Max Loewenstein; their son, Henry, was born that same year. Having previously studied at the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Maria refined her artistic talents at the Institute of Fine Arts in Berlin. Lowenstein emigrated to the United States in 1946 and settled first in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, where one of her students was Barrie Karp. Max Loewenstein died in 1948. Later, Maria settled in Denver where her son, Henry (1925-2014), became prominent on the theatre scene as a producer and set designer. She passed away in 1982.
