It is in VERY GOOD condition Comes in original black wooden THIN frame. Frame is in good condition. About the Artist: María Eugenia Casuso 1941 – 2008 “It is rare for an unknown artist to possess such a profound graphic language, to release ego and face art like a faithful servant – like a saint, or a zen master. María Eugenia Casuso is one of those rare artists who fits that mold.” -- Jacob Klintowitz, Panamericana Escola del Arte e Design – São Paulo, Brasil For the serious collector, it is even rarer to discover an artist hitherto unknown – an artist who is so completely of a time and place. Such an artist is María Eugenia Casuso. “The theme of María Eugenia’s work is the structure of space, the rhythmic possibilities of the heart, and geometry,” wrote Jacob Klintowitz, Director of the prestigious Panamericana Escola del Arte e Design in São Paulo. “She thinks of the canvas as a deterministic universe in which shapes evolve in harmonious movements. The juxtaposition of these shapes creates a visual rhythm and gently guides the eyes of the viewer. Other times, the shape turns in an apparently infinite space like a dancing goddess creating the reality of the world. They are shapes living in a spontaneous and predetermined dialog. Her paintings seem effortless, yet it is evident that their creation required tremendous concentration, a laborious study of geometric matters, and a vital energy of astonishing proportions. Hers is a form of painting which is organized, severe, detailed and planned. Yet, that rigor doesn’t affect the feeling that they are only possible through existential examination. The shapes may dance in space, yet they are tied to an expert and sensuous thought.” Born in Santander, on Spain’s northern coast on the Gulf of Biscay, María Eugenia emigrated as a teenager to Venezuela with her parents. There she studied art and interior design at the renowned Emma Illes Art Academy in Caracas. Referred by the Director of the Academy, she started her professional vocation, rising quickly to the top of her career at Decovensa, one of Venezuela’s most sought-after interior design firms where she worked for 10 years. These were “the boom years” in Venezuela, and María Eugenia’s unique talents were called upon for some of the country’s most important companies. In 1972 she became a Venezuelan citizen and married Andras Dobroy: a Hungarian / Brazilian executive, the head of Marketing for Chrysler Europe and himself a onetime film actor of some repute in his native Hungary. The couple lived in Paris and Brussels for several years before moving to São Paulo in 1978. There María Eugenia began a period of intense creativity resulting in her participation in popular contemporary exhibitions at the Galería Porta, Rio Claro and Americana galleries in São Paulo followed by her one solo exhibition in Galería de Arte André. Inexplicably, María Eugenia stopped painting after 1987, although astute buyers and designers sought her out over the years, she having produced a considerable body of work that still graces homes, offices and corporate lobbies throughout Brazil. Diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in July 2007, she died surrounded by family in January 2008. In the intervening decade, a hitherto unknown trove of María Eugenia’s art was discovered. Now, this unique artist makes her North American debut – truly something special for the discerning collector.
