Almost There – Camille And Broncia

8 Jun

camille broncia

Numbers 6 and 7 of my series of 8 women artists in silkscreen are the tragic French sculptor, Camille Claudel and the Austrian Expressionist painter, Broncia Koller-Pinell. I’ve produced each of these in editions of 25, all hand-printed in Daler Rowney System 3 acrylic pigment mixed with screenprinting medium onto a beautiful antique paper, creamy, lightly textured, medium weight, deckle-edged, produced by TH Saunders, an old British paper mill, sadly no longer in business. So once I’ve used up this supply of paper, that’s it.

These will be launched at the London Art Car Boot Fair in Brick Lane on Sunday the 14th June. I’ll be there with Dylan’s Book Bus and fellow artist Simon Dark.

    Great idea for a series! I recently read “Rodin’s Lover” by Heather Webb. Camille Claudel’s story truly was a tragedy.

      Thank you. I will look out for that book. It’s a shocking story, poor woman.

    Thanks Rosie. Broncia was a new artist to me so thank you for the introduction. I also followed some of the links in Wikipedia and found this post on The Blue Lantern, http://thebluelantern.blogspot.com.au/2010/12/there-at-secession-broncia-koller.html?m=1
    It includes more paintings and if you read the comments there is one from one of Broncia’s relatives. I hope you work sells well at the car boot sale!

      Oooh thanks for that link, Leonie. I like what I have seen of her work. I love that whole Secessionist period in art. I saw some of her work when I was in Vienna last year and it’s fabulous. She should have more recognition, but that’s typical with women and art history 😡
