ART Berthe


Pastel: 67 x 82 cm / 26.4 x 32.3 in
Signed upper right

Lady painter of still lifes, flowers and fruit.

Berthe Art was a pupil of Alfred Stevens in Paris and attended his studio for more than ten years. She excelled in pastels and participated with success in a number of exhibitions both in Belgium and abroad.

Together, with elegance and distinguished perception, Berthe Art adds a vigour of expression and a scheme of colours which are absolutely masculine. Though her main pencil lines contain an arrogant boldness in her shading, there is great finesse.

This painting has been exhibited at the exhibition “Le Cercle des Femmes peintres” in the Musée Rops in Namur, Belgium (April 13 till September 8, 2024).
