Description

Made into a poster by the Suzanne Brown Gallery, this image is iconic for the artist, Katalin Ehling.

You can almost hear the swish of the woman's skirt and she proceeds on her way, sheltered from the sun beneath her red umbrella.

About the Artist (Born 1941) "Katalin Ehling is recognized as a master of batik, a centuries old art form in which the colorful design is created by resist dying.

Ehling's work reflects the richness of the Southwest, sharing the beauty of the land, its people and their customs. Now, she brings her visions to the medium of original stone lithography and serigraphy. The result is work with intense colors and a warm peaceful feeling. 

"I see forms, colors and shapes, rather than details. My work gives you an impression of life, and the serenity and pride of the shepherds, potters and weavers who have always lived here."

Ehling was born in Hungary in 1941. After a childhood disrupted by war, she and her family came to this country to rebuild their lives. She studied at the American Academy of Art in Chicago, Illinois, the Ecole de Dessin de La Mode in Paris, France and the Phoenix College in Arizona.

Her work is in permanent collections at the Frye Art Museum in Seattle, Washington and the American Indian Arts and Culture Museum in Evanston, Illinois. "  taken from Ask Art
