Anita Berber

Anita Berber was a famous scandalous dancer and actress in the Berlin of the 20's, said to be prostitute too (see here for a short biography). A thing is sure: she's been an influence for many artists and Otto Dix did a famous portrait of her (last of the series, unusually a painting and not a picture). Here I gathered some rather good quality and definition images from her. She died very young, from drugs (cocaine) and alcohol at 29, a sort of Amy Winehouse of the Weimar era. This is a small hommage to her.
