Claudine Hurwitz’s paintings have been hailed for their “grace and poetry” and their “subtle and precise pointillist touches which capture the light” of the French countryside.
Since her first exhibition at the Galerie Mirador in Paris in 1951, Claudine’s paintings have been shown at art galleries and museums in her native France and the United States. Born in Paris, she was educated in both France and the United States, graduating from the Parson’s School of Design in New York and the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris.
As a disciple of the “School of Paris” she was recognized by the art critic Jean Bouret, who created the term, “I’homme termain”, meaning “mas a witness,” for the new movement which rejected abstract art and was searching for a naturalism inspired by the realities of life.
Claudine’s still lifes become true landscapes in which the brilliance of the fruits and flowers is supported by the depth and subtle tones of her background tapestries and textures.
