Eugenie Baizerman

American, Polish, 1899-1949

Eugenie Baizerman was one of America's earliest Abstract Impressionists. Prior to immigrating to the United States in 1910, Baizerman's family lived in Bessarabia, a province of Russia and in the city of Odessa in the Russian Ukraine. The surname she received at birth, changed to Silverman upon her arrival in America, remains unknown. Baizerman's mother, an actress and her father, a language teacher, began nurturing her artistic skill during childhood. They initially hired an artist to coach her individually. She was later admitted to the Odessa Art School. After moving to New York City, Baizerman continued her art education at the National Art Academy of Design, followed by the Educational Alliance. She became acquainted with Saul Baizerman, a Russian sculptor working as a model for the National Academy of Design, whom she later married. Baizerman's unique style of painting emerged from French Impressionism and evolved into form of expression. She used the subjects of her paintings - ordinary objects, landscapes and figures - as the basis for rhythmically combing thick, colorful brushstrokes in abstracted, harmonious compositions. A preference for working in isolation greatly affected Baizerman's career as an artist. Throughout her life, she was extremely shy. Also, during most of her adulthood, she dealt with respiratory problems caused by partially psychosomatic asthma. In order to avoid potentially stressful situations that aggravated her condition, she refrained from actively promoting herself and her artwork. It was on rare occasion that she allowed the inclusion of her work in public exhibitions. For these reasons, knowledge of her work was kept to a minimum. Before her death in 1949, which was attributed to her respiratory illness, the extent of Baizerman's public involvement was limited to two shows. The first, held in 1939, was a solo display. The second was in conjunction with her husband's sculptural work closer to the time of her death. Baizerman's artwork remained unexposed for nearly 12 years until a collection of paintings, which had been in Saul Baizerman's possession prior to his death in 1957, were displayed to the public. The exhibition, held in 1961 by the Artists Gallery of New York City, resulted in the acquisition of her work institutions including the Museum of Modern Art and the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York.

Antique Limoges Enamel Portrait of Woman and Lap Dog
Located in London, GB
The beautiful enamel plaque was crafted in Limoges, a town in northern France. Limoges has long been associated with the production of high quality enamel wares. While to begin with, in the 12th Century, the town was famous for its applied enamel pieces, religious icons, for example, which were crafted in metal with champlevé enamel ornament, Limoges later, in the 15th century, began to paint onto enamel, creating plaques, plates and ewers, which were both religious and secular in character. These local techniques were revived in the mid-19th century, when items like this enamel portrait painting were produced. This enamel portrait is a half-length depiction of a young woman. While her body is faced slightly to the side, she turns her head to look out directly at the viewer. The woman wears a fine, light pink gown...

Impressionist Portrait Painting of a Bohemian Woman Budapest 1925
Located in Rochester, NY
Bohemian woman Budapest, Hungary 1925 by Bertha De Hellebranth. Fabulous period painting brings to life the bohemian intelligentsia of Europe in the 1920's. I believe the painting is of the artists sister Elena Maria De Hellebranth. Both sisters were accomplished artist and worked and exhibited together. See the photo of the sisters Elena on the left and Bertha on the right. Oil on canvas. In a period frame. Signed lower right. Inscribed on reverse. Provenance: label from Newman Galleries Philadelphia. BIOGRAPHY ; Bertha de Hellebranth and her sister Elena were born into a cultured upper-class family in Budapest, Bertha in 1899, Elena in 1897. Their father was a lawyer and their mother a student of Franz Liszt's last living pupil. Both sisters showed artistic potential early, beginning to paint at four or five years of age. Their parents encouraged them, and had the means to send them to the best art schools of the time. They studied at the Academy of Fine Art in Budapest, at the Académie Julian and the Académie de la Grande Chaumière in Paris, and painted portraits of European nobility. As Patricia Fazekas points out, "Growing up in a family of privilege, they seemed to have unusual access to many illustrious people." So we should not be surprised to find among their subjects members of high society, such as Count Andrássy Gyula, the Russian-born Princess Baby Galitzine, and Admiral Horthy Miklós, the Regent. Later on, their subjects included American heiress Gladys Vanderbilt (Countess László Széchenyi), President Theodore Roosevelt's granddaughter Paulina Longworth and former President Dwight D. Eisenhower.Often, the sisters would paint the same subject at the same time, offering the sitter a choice of portraits. Most often, the sitter wanted both renditions.While Elena concentrated on working in oil and watercolor, Bertha used gouache and oil to achieve her effects. Elena gave lectures and workshops, was a writer and also wrote popular and ecclesiastical music, while Bertha also went in for sculpture and handicrafts.From the mid-thirties until World War II, Bertha and Elena divided their time between their home in Budapest and a home on the ocean at Ventnor, NJ. In 1925, they showed their work at the Nemzeti Szalon in Budapest, and in 1926, they had a joint exhibition of their portraits in the US. Both exhibited their work at the Art Institute of Chicago, the Brooklyn Museum of Art, the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and most major museums and galleries in the US. Bertha also had exhibits at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Both Bertha and Elena were Fellows of the Royal Society of Art (London), and garnered numerous prizes. Bertha was awarded First Prize by the National Academy of the American Water Color Society one year, and the Grand Prize of the Audubon Society. She was one of the founders of the now defunct World League of Hungarian Artists Abroad (Külföldi Magyar Képz?m?vészek Világszövetsége), and received a Gold Medal from the Cleveland Árpád Akadémia in 1963. (Elena also received the Akadémia's gold medal in 1965.) Their work is found in museums and galleries too numerous to mention.The de Hellebranth sisters were devout Catholics, and this is evident in their many portraits of clerics...
