Russia Is Grey, The Netherlands Is Green…

Another instalment of Russian painting from one of my Parels” (Pearls) day visits. I’m, also continuing with the translation of an article written about her Ine van den Boer given for the “ArtiBrak” publication. (Text translated and used with permission)

Natalia Stefanova – phantasy rooted in Russian tradition”,  “In 2005 Natalia (born in 1958 in Yekaterinburg, Russia) came to the Netherlands for  (her now husband). This time the move was permanent, after she had visited a few times and love persisted. Natalia loves the Netherlands, the sea, the dunes and the people. “The Netherlands is green and the people are open and they always smile”. She says. “I had a good life in Moscow, but whenever I return to Russia I think the people are sullen and the country is grey”.

Well, there is certainly no grey in Natalia’s house, it’s filled to the brim with paintings and colour.
