Nura Ulreich Art

American, 1899-1950
Nora Woodson Ulreich was born in 1899 in Kansas City, Missouri, and was known professionally as “Nura.” She was a painter, printmaker, author, and illustrator, particularly of children’s books. Ulreich studied at the Kansas City Art Institute, the Chicago Academy of Fine Arts, and the Art Students League in New York. She also studied in Paris where she met her Hungarian-born husband, fellow artist Eduard Buk Ulreich, and first exhibited at the Théâtre des Champs Elysées in 1926. Her style was a studied but naïve form of modernism and she often portrayed seemingly innocent views of children and their pets. Nura was a strong believer in Christian Science and sometimes included spiritual motifs in her whimsical pieces with an Art Deco-inspired palette. Nura frequently collaborated with Edward and their combined works often use the moniker “Bukannura.” In 1927, their work was exhibited at the Dudensing Gallery on 57th Street in New York. Eduard was also a muralist who completed commissions for the Treasury Department’s Section of Fine Arts between 1937 and 1940. Both Nura and Eduard are listed in Who Was Who in American Art and all other standard references.

'Summer', New York ASL, Art Students League, PAFA, Salon d'Automne, Paris
By Nura Ulreich
Located in Santa Cruz, CA
Signed lower right 'Nura' for Nura Woodson Ulreich (American, 1899–1950) above copyright information 'Nura W. Ulreich' and dated 1938. The poem below the figure of Summer reads: "Shimmer of heat from the hot dust road. Cold is the mud where the fern grows deep. Flower-scented atmosphere- peaceful sleep. Humming Bird daintily poised on its way. Velvet the night- iridescent the day. Showers and thunder, soft rainbows. Beauty incarnate in delicate clothes. This is the saga of Summer. " This painter, illustrator, muralist, lithographer, author and poet first studied at the Kansas City Art Institute before attending the Chicago Academy of Fine Arts and the Art Students League in New York. Nura Woodson then studied under John French Sloan and, later, with Frederic Gruger. She subsequently moved to Paris where she lived and painted for several years and where she met and married her husband, the Hungarian-American artist Buk Ulreich. While in France, she exhibited with success, including at the Salon d'Automne, and began to paint under the brush name, 'Nura'. After returning to the United States, Ulreich continued to exhibit widely, including at the Art Institute of Chicago, the Corcoran Galleries Biennials (1928-39), the Salons of America, the Society of Independent Artists (1928, 1941) and the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts (1929-1931).
