The Russian Art Tour Continues…

The next “Parels” (Pearls) artist I find is named Natalia, a Russian lady married to a Dutch husband. They explained that because Natalia was not allowed to work when she arrived in the Netherlands, to fill in her time she put her Moscow art school training to good use and began to paint. Now the walls are filled almost to bursting with paintings.

The next translated text from a local Dutch article in “ArtiBrak” publication by Ine van den Boer. (Text translated and used with permission). It reads: “Natalia Stefanova – phantasy rooted in Russian tradition. With Russian hospitality and an enthusiastic flow of eloquence, Natalia Schoutsen-Stefanova receives me in her apartment in The Hague, an apartment filled to the rafters with art. In the living room, the hall, the bedroom, wherever you look you can see colourful acrylic paintings of mythical figures which seem to have stepped out of tarot cards or the Venetian carnival. “
