Born in America, Florence Homolka (née Meyer) lived a long time in Europe, where she made close contacts with Man Ray, who had photographed the composer Arnold Schönberg in Paris in 1927. When the Nazis took power, she emigrated with her Jewish husband Oskar Homolka to the United States, where she took many portraits of important artists such as Thomas Mann, Charlie Chaplin and Lion Feuchtwanger.
