The Hoffman Chair by Brigitte Thonhauser-Merk, Acrylic on Canvas
24 x 32
Acrylic on Canvas
The Viennese artist Brigitte Thonhauser-Merk expresses her love for harmonious colours and clear lines in works full of power, vividcolours and elegance where her cultural heritage of the Viennese Jugendstil meets with inspirations from nature and the great masters of the past she discovered in the fifties during several trips to Paris. She is working out her impressions according to her own fantasy sometimes with an ornamental touch or by reducing the shapes even to abstract creations. She likes joyful subjects which are to be „a feast for the eyes“ as mentioned by Delacroix.
She got her artistic education in the Vienna School of Fine Arts, Lazarettgasse and in private lessons with famous painters in Austria and is holding a Master’s degree inRomanistik and a Bachelor’s degree in Art History from the University of Vienna/Austria.
Her paintings have been shown in sole and group exhibitions in Europe, China, Israel (Salon d’Automne International), Turkey, USA (New York), and she got several awards of excellence.
I am expressing my love for harmonious colors and clear lines in vibrant paintings that reflect joy and elegance. In my work my cultural heritage of the Viennese Jugendstil meets with impressions from nature and the great maters of the past which I discovered in the fifties during several trips to Paris. I have shown my works in more than hundred and twenty Solo and group exhibitions in Europe, Israel and other countries and have received several international awards.
