Jeanne Mammen was born in Berlin, but moved to Paris by the age of 5, where she became fluent in French. The daughter of a successful merchant, she and her sister Marie began their art education in 1906, at the Académie Julian in Paris. They traveled to Brussels in 1908, to study at the Académie Royale des Beaux-Arts in Brussels, and in 1911 at the Scuola Libera Academica, Villa Medici, in Rome.

After her father suffered financial reverses due to WWI, the family moved back to Berlin, where Jeanne and his sister lived in a studio together. She worked as a magazine illustrator and poster designer. But in 1933, the National Socialists denounced her art. She managed to support herself until 1945, when she began exhibiting her paintings again, until her death in 1979.
