Eva Levina-Rosengoltz

Alex van Oss reports on the paintings of Eva Levina-Rosengoltz, now on display at the Museum of Women in the Arts in Washinton, D.C. The artist was relatively unknown during her lifetime, but now, twenty-four years after her death, she is coming to be recognized as one of the great painters of the Soviet Union. Her subject matter — bleak landscapes, stormy skies, few people — was dictated by the years she spent in exile in Siberia.
