6 stunning new prints by Anita Klein have just arrived in the gallery.
Anita Klein studied at Chelsea and the Slade schools of art. She works in London and Anghiari, Italy and has exhibited her prints and paintings extensively in the UK, Europe, the USA and Australia. In 2003 she was elected president of the Royal Society of Painter Printmakers and she has work in many private and public collections including the Arts Council England and the British Museum.
Anita’s work celebrates the small domestic moments we all share. She says that these everyday events are what she would miss most “if it all was taken away”. While family photo albums record our lives as one long round of birthdays and holidays, the very moments we should most value are almost always ignored and forgotten.
Anita’s father’s family were Hungarian Jewish refugees from war torn Europe who lost everything, including family members, apart from their lives, therefore she grew up with a very strong awareness that made her realize how lucky she was. Anita Klein believes that there is too little respect for the art of happiness and shares her graceful optimism through her art.
