About (Profile/Biography):
Lili Ilse Elvenes was born on 28 December 1882 and died on 13 September 1931. Her name was Lili Elbe, and she was a transgender woman. She is the one who underwent sex reassignment surgery at an early date. Her birth name was Einar Wegener, and she was a successful painter. Lili Ilse Elvenes changed her legal name and stopped painting after transitioning in 1930; she later adopted the surname Elbe. Unfortunately, the transplant resulted in her death due to complications.
When Gottlieb's model, Anna Larssen [da], was late for an appointment, Elbe stepped in to fill in for her in women's clothing, wearing stockings and heels.
1920: Lili Elbe regularly attended various festivities and entertained guests in her home with the name Lili, suggested by Larssen in the 1920s.
It was Gottlieb's paintings of beautiful women in chic clothing with haunting, almond-shaped eyes that made her famous.
Several petites femme fatales are depicted in this series. The model is Elbe. Her transition caused Elbe to stop painting.
During the 1930s: Elbe underwent highly experimental sex reassignment surgery in Germany. It took two years for a series of four operations to be performed.
1931: A uterus was transplanted, and a vaginal canal was constructed in 1931, which was her fourth surgery.
Three months after the transplant, Elbe died from cardiac arrest because of an infection caused by the transplanted uterus and a subsequent surgical revision.
