Solitude

Description

Painting of an amorphous head and body in ochre on the left edge on an off-white background. Signed bottom right "G. Bernstein".

As a child, Gerda Meyer Bernstein was a member of the Kindertransport, sent from Germany to England in 1938. Much of her work explores the difficult realities and suffering of victims of the Holocaust, but also “addresses healing, hope, and continuity.” She was one of the founders of ARC Gallery in Chicago and is represented by Fassbender Fine Art.

This painting is not currently on display.
