Who is / was "D. Goldschmidt"?

My wife has inherited a portrait in oil of Leo Baeck
which is dated and signed, "1952 D. Goldschmidt". Who is / was D. Goldschmidt?
We believe that the painting was purchased by my wife's grandfather, Hans-Georg Sladowsky, shortly after it was completed (in Berlin, we think) though he did not commission it. We're thinking about lending the portrait to the Leo Baeck College
, not least because we live nearby and are members of the shul next door. But I'd like to know something of the life and work of D. Goldschmidt. Google seems to be failing me. What steps can I take to find some relevant information?
