Artist: Edith Meisl-Bernhard

.

I bought this luminous painting from Camberwell Market many years ago.

Tucked into the back of the canvas was the photostat review of an exhibition by Edith Meisl-Bernhard at the Katz Gallery in Tel Aviv in 1965, from which this painting presumably comes. It is the only thing that I can find out about the artist but what a life it seems: art training in Budapest and at the Rome Academy of Art; set design at the National Theatre and State Opera houses in Arad and Timisoara, Rumania; set design and costumes at the Israel Opera, Tel Aviv; and exhibiting artist. I have always treasured this painting – for the light, the colours and the atmosphere the artist creates within the picture frame. If anyone knows more about the artist could you please contact me. Thankyou.

“Starting from stage decors, she produces a variety of landscapes with warmth and sensibility. Preserving a personal touch in colouring and in light and shade distribution, she succeeds in rendering in her works local colour and atmosphere, whether in Paris or Jerusalem, in mountainous Galileo or coastal Acre.”

Thankx to my friend Ian, here is the luminosity of the painting – without the colour you can easily see the tonal structure!!
