Elisabeth Dittmann Model was a painter and sculptor. She was born in Bayreuth, Bavaria and showed an early interest in art that later led to her attending art school. She studied sculpture in Munich under Walter Thor and Cericioli; in Amsterdam at the Rijksakademie under Professor Jurgens; and in Paris under Moissey Kogan. She met her husband, Max Model, while in school. Model, along with her husband and children, fled Nazi Germany to Amsterdam in the Netherlands. They traveled to Greece, Israel, Italy, and finally settled in New York City in 1941.
