Sandu Liberman is a well-recognized artist, whose work is in demand. Even his lithographs have risen in price to hundreds of dollars. As so many of you have realized, I always prefer original art to any type of limited edition. I expect his prices to continue to rise. This is one of two originals of his I have so far, and am pricing it well below the only pencil and ink original I could find.
While he was still in his native Romania Liberman exhibited in a number of state shows in Bucharest. In 1952 he was awarded the gold medal at the International Art Festival in Romania. That same year he was commissioned to illustrate the large encyclopedia "Romania", and was appointed Official Portrait Artist of Romania.
He went to Israel in 1962 and settled there. Liberman was commissioned by the Government of Israel to make portraits on many occasions. in 1965 he was commissioned by the Government of Israel to make a portrait of the President of Guinea. It hangs in the Royal Palace.
This is a very ethereal painting. The little girl and her doll are in the foreground, but behind them on the right is what seems to me to be a vague face of a man. I feel this is one of the best of Sandu Liberman's works I have ever seen.
