Finding Helene Pferdmenges (news)

After posting and sending several emails to Pferdmenges family members with accessible email addresses I received notice of attention by a friendly family member who will look into this puzzle and forward my interest. 

And as many times before I received an addition, a piece of the puzzle, that I've obviously overlooked, by faithful reader Hannelore from Austria. Not identical but possibly related ?

Hilde Prelle-Pferdmenges 
(26-06-1907 – 1981 Hamburg)

Painter, graphic artist and sculptor. Studied painting “Wintersemester" 1928/29 at  Munich “Akademie der Bildenden Künste”. Married “Studienrat” (high school teacher) Walter Prelle(1906 - 1978). Since 1953 member HKüS and “Hamburger Berufsverbandes Bildender Künstler” and living and working in a nice villa in Hamburg Farmsen, Farmsener Höhe 17. Taught artist Anke Landenberger (b. 1948). The couple is buried at “Friedhof Hamburg –Tonndorf”. 

Hilde is mentioned in: "Der neue Rump, Lexicon der bildenden Künstler Hamburgs".

This is the only example I was able to find and I doubt the auction catalogue title: "Maxe Kirschberg". It is obviously a Jewish older man and dated 1940.

As always: all information welcomed !
