KAHLO Frida 6.7.1907 - 13.7.1954
Mehiška slikarka se je rodila kot Magdalena Carmen Frida Kahlo y Calderón v predmestju Mexico Cityja. Kot otrok je prebolela otroško paralizo, kot najstnica pa je doživela hudo prometno nesrečo zaradi katere je trpela celo življenje. Zaradi bolezni in nesreče je morala prestati trideset hudih operacij. Najprej je hotela študirati medicino. Kasneje pa se je predala slikarstvu. Njene slike odkrito izražajo čustveno in fizično trpljenje zaradi uničenega telesa. Od njenih 143 ohranjenih slik je kar 55 avtoportretov. Poročena je bila s znanim slikarjem Diego Rivero. Bila je podpornica komunizma. V njenem bivšem domu La Casa Azul v rodnem Coyoacánu je urejen muzej s številnimi njenimi deli.

Frida Kahlo was a Mexican painter, who has achieved great international popularity. She painted using vibrant colors in a style that was influenced by indigenous cultures of Mexico as well as by European influences that include realism, symbolism, and surrealism. Many of her works are self-portraits that express her own pain symbolically. Kahlo was married to and encouraged by the Mexican muralist Diego Rivera. They shared political views. Although she has long been recognized as an important painter, public awareness of her work has become more widespread since the 1970s. Her "Blue" house in Coyoacán, Mexico City is a popular museum, donated by Diego Rivera upon his death in 1957.

Drugič se je poročila z Andrejem Karamzinom, sinom znanega ruskega zgodovinarja Nikolaja Kraramzina, ki je bil ubit leta 1854 v krimski vojni. Vse to jo je spodbudilo, da je pomagala Fincem leta 1860, ko je tam vladala velika lakota. Prodala je svojo palačo v Saint Petersburgu in z denarjem ustanovila v Helsinkih Diakonski inštitut, kjer so se šolale prve bolniške sestre. Pobudo za to je dobila med obiskom Evangeličanski bolnic v Saint Petersburgu in pri nemškem duhovniku Fliednerju, ki je ustanovil prvi Diakonski inštitut.

Katarina Sienska sv. - CATHERINE of Siena st.  25.3.1347 - 29.4.1380
Dominikanka in svetnica Katarina je bila izjemna osebnost, mističarka in "politična svetovalka." Bila je članica meniškega tretjega reda. Pripadniki tega reda so dali le preproste zaobljube in niso živeli v samostanih. Pridružila se je spokorniškim sestram svetega Dominika v Sieni in hitro zaslovela po svetosti in odpovedovanju. Ko je Gregor XI. leta 1376 izobčil uporniške Firence, se je Katarina lotila mirovniške akcije za spravo v cerkvi in Italiji ter pozvala h križarski vojni proti muslimanom. Spoznala je, da bo to mogoče samo, če se bo papež vrnil v Rim. Pošiljala je pisma in svarila s katerimi je podpirala papeža in ga pregovorila, da je preselil papeški sedež iz Avignona spet v Rim. Njena znamenita knjiga Dialogi je menda nastala na podlagi neposrednih stikov s Kristusom. Med njena dela spada še 380 pisem in 26 molitev. Vsa dela je narekoval, saj je bila nepismena. God praznuje 29. aprila.

Catherine of Siena, was an Italian mystic. She is especially remembered for the part she played in bringing about the return (1377) of Pope Gregory XI from the papal residence in Avignon, France, to Rome. Convinced of the necessity of ending the 68-year absence of the popes from Rome, Catherine traveled (1376) to Avignon to present her case personally and persuade the pope to leave France. St. Catherine is also known for her unusual mystical revelations, the holiness of her life, and her spiritual writings. Always deeply religious, she became a member of the Dominican Third Order when she was 16 years of age. Although she never learned to write, Catherine nevertheless dictated several treatises, the best known of which is The Dialogue. She was canonized in 1461. In 1970, she was declared a Doctor of the Church. Feast day: Apr. 29.

Her artistic career began in 1954 when she began studying graphic and sculpture design at the Viennese College for Applied Arts.

From the early 1960´s Kiki Kogelnik worked and resided in New York, Vienna and her hometown, Bleiburg. Her first artistic creations reflect the abstract forms of Pop-Art which she adopted early on but are characterised by her own distinctive picture language. In 1962 she developed the first series of wrapping paper collages, portraying friends and colleagues. These silhouettes became a principal foundation of her artistic work, which included tableau paintings and graphics as well as sculptures and creative installations.

Kollwitz Kathe 8.7.1867 - 22.4.1945
Nemška slikarka je študirala slikarstvo v Berlinu in Minchnu. Po 1890 se je posvetila predvsem grafiki. Poročena je bila z zdravnikom. V njegovi ordinaciji je spoznala bedo revnih slojev. V 1. svetovni vojni padlemu sinu je oblikovala in postavila svojevrsten spomenik v Flandriji. Nacisti so odstranili njena dela in ji prepovedali delati. 1943 ji je letalska bomba uničila studio in večino del. Najprej je ustvarjala v realističnem, kasneje pa ekspresionističnem slogu. Pomembni so njeni grafični cikli Upor tkalcev (1897-98), Kmečka vojna (1908) in Tema smrti (1936).

The distinguished German graphic artist Kathe Kollwitz took as her theme the suffering caused by poverty, rebellion, war, and death. Kollwitz's urgent social and political concern is evident in her major print cycles: The Weavers' Uprising (1895-98), a series of three lithographs and three etchings based on a play by Gerhardt Hauptmann; Peasants' War (1902-08), War (1922-23) and Proletariat (1925), both comprising woodcuts in an expressionist style reminiscent of Ernst Barlach; and Death (1934-35), lithographs that combine the theme of mortality with self-portraiture. Kollwitz is also known for her sculpture, notably her war monument (unveiled 1933) in Belgium's Roggevelt Military Cemetery.

Koster Lou 7.5.1889 - 17.11.1973
Luksemburška skladateljica.

As the daughter of the orchestra leader for the Luxembourg Army First Chasseurs’ battalion, Franz Hoebig, Lou Koster grew up in a family of musicians. Thus it was no surprise when, in 1907, she began studying music; afterwards she taught violin, piano, and solfeggio at the conservatory of Luxembourg. She put to music the word of the great poets (including Alfred de Musset, Paul Verlaine, J.W. von Goethe, Edouard Mörike and Theodor Storm) and composed piano scores for the works of Luxembourg authors such as Nic. Welter (notably, one of his most important works, the ballad Le violoniste d’Echternach), Willy Goergen, Lucien Koenig and Wöllem Weis. The music of Lou Koster was neither avant-garde nor classical modernism. Her music reminds us very simply of « the good old days» and that’s why she fascinates the listener. It was only in 1959 that Lou Koster interpreted with great success her first « Récital de mélodies et de poésies » with famous Luxembourg artists. In 1964, for her 75th birthday, the highest honours of the Union Grand-Duc Adolphe were conferred upon her.

Kovalevskaja Sonja 15.1.1850 - 10.2.1891
Ruska matematičarka je veliko prispevala k razvoju teorije diferencialnih enačb. Njen oče je pri njej spodbujal zanimanje za matematiko. Najel ji je osebnega učitelja. Da bi lahko študirala, se je poročila s paleontologom Kovalevskim in z njim odšla v Nemčijo, kjer so jo leta 1869 sprejeli na heidelberško univerzo. Po dveh  letih se je preselila v Berlin. Tu se je morala zadovoljiti z zasebnimi urami pri matematiku Karlu Weierstrassu, saj na berlinski univerzi niso sprejemali žensk. Pripravila je kar tri doktorske disertacije, preden je leta 1874 ob podpori Weierstrassa doktorirala na univerzi v Gottingergu. Postala je prva Evropejka z doktoratom iz matematike in ki je dognanja disertacije tudi objavila. Leta 1883 po moževem samomoru je dobila docentsko mesto na univerzi v Stockholmu. Začela je urejati revijo Acta Mathematica. Leta 1886 je dobila Borodinovo nagrado za razpravo o vrtenju trdnega telesa okrog določene točke, ki je zajemala tudi analizo Saturnovih prstanov. Tega leta je prejela tudi nagrado Švedske akademije znanosti. Znana je po delih s področja parcialnih diferencialnih enačb, eliptičnih integralov in z uporabo matematike pri problemih astronomije. Za delo O gibanju togega telesa okoli mirne točke dobila nagrado Francoske akademije. Ukvarjala se je tudi s pisateljevanjem.

She was born into a noble Russian family and due to her gender had to overcome many obstacles in order to pursue her interest in mathematics. Barred from matriculating at Heidelberg, she audited lectures and later studied privately with Weierstrass, receiving a doctorate (in absentia) from Goettingen for an important paper on partial differential equations. Still, academic appointments eluded her. In 1884 she did obtain a position in Stockholm, thereafter winning honors and prizes, including the Prix Bordin in France.
