Eisendieck was born in Dantzig, Germany in 1908. She exhibited at the Salon des Independents in 1929. After studying at the Académie des Beaux-Arts, she participated in two successful exhibitions in Berlin. She moved to Paris in 1932 and began to show her works which found a wide market because of their uniqueness, coupled with a concept and a style always original and highly personal. Her impressionistic style involves almost tremulous brushstrokes, diffusing the subject’s contours. Always  exuding happiness and colors.

Eisendieck had her first solo exhibition at Zak gallery, Paris, in 1932. She also had successful exhibitions in London, Montreal (Dominion Gallery), New York City, and Cologne, as well as joint exhibitions with her husband the artist Dietz Edzard, in Los Angeles, London, New York City, Chicago, and Palm Beach.

Eisendieck’s impressionistic style involves almost tremulous brushstrokes, diffusing the subject’s contours. Her paintings exude happiness and are executed with a symphony of colors. She has long been famous for her depictions of the girl at a ball, a young woman strolling in the garden, or her children at the seashore. The whole world has come to recognize the identity of her characterizations which became tradition. Whether painting her favorite theme of mother and child in various settings, a landscape with figures, clowns, or flowers – she maintains a remarkable standard of creativity.

Her ‘Monet’ ladies continue in popularity and Suzanne Eisendieck and her late husband Dietz Edzard, the important impressionist who died in 1963, remain celebrated as two of the greatest exponents of that part of the School of Paris capturing the ultimate in French glamour. She had lived in Paris on the Left Bank in a large apartment hung with impressionist paintings which reflect her own taste and her great success.
Suzanne Eisendieck is recorded in E. Benezit, “Dictionnaire des Peintres, Sculpteurs, Dessinateurs, et Graveurs,” which notes that she had been exhibiting in Paris since 1929 at the Salon des Independants.
