Bradi Barth (Swiss/Belgian 1922 - 2007) had loved art as a young girl in Switzerland, but had to learn an actual trade during the Second World War, and worked in child care. After the war, she studied art at the Royal Academy of Art in Ghent, Belgium. She found her heart's desire in Belgium, and devoted her life to her art. Many of her paintings have religious subjects, almost all are of people. She won a Gold Medal in Life Drawings. I really enjoy her style; reminiscent of the old Dutch Masters. This particular painting seems to show a young girl in contemplation of something quite meaningful to her.
There is a wonderful documentary on Bradi Barh's life that had been made by CRTN. that can be found on You Tube. Most of her artwork remains in Europe, but what has been sold here have reached one for $2,500.00 and another for over $3,200.00.

Condition: The frame is absolutely beautiful and in Excellent Condition. There is a small loss in the palm of her hand, easily seen in the photos. I am embarrassed to admit that I did this.

I have drastically reduced the price for this small damage. It is otherwise in Very Good Condition.
