Constenoble was a graphic artist and painter born in Danzig, Germany
in 1866. As of 1883 she was a student of Karl Gussow. She later studied
in Munich and in 1888 moved to Berlin.
Costenoble exhibited with the Vienna Secession in 1899 and the Berlin
Secession in 1900, 1901 and 1908. In 1907 She illustrated the book Penthesileia
by Haussauer and Friederike.
In 1898 with the exhibition of a series of paintings “Tragedy
of the Woman” in Dresden she received great public recognition,
though critics did not agree with this acclaim. In response to the critics’
negative sentiment she published several original etchings in the
Vienna Secession newspaper (1899) and in the Bildner Kunst newspaper
Though Costenoble’s maintained a successful career her work is
still fairly obscure.
Costenoble died in Berlin in 1930.
