Anne Ratkowski-Wagner, born Anneliese Ratkowski in Berlin, was a member of the November Group, a loose union of radical artists. The group was formed in Berlin in 1918 by Arthur Segal, who was a mentor to Ratkowski, and others. She was married to fellow member Nikolaus Braun from 1920 to 1938. In 1938, she burned her work before fleeing Nazi persecution and hiding in Belgium. There, she married Paul Wangenheim and the couple emigrated to the United States after the war, changing their name to Wagner and settling in New York City.
