Theme/Style Post-Impressionism, Modernism. Portraits, still lifes
Media Oils, murals, watercolors
Artistic Focus Among the canvases painted by Jane Berlandina during her career were portraits, landscapes, genre and still lifes, created in a variety of media, including oil, watercolors and tempera. She was best known for her watercolors, which reflected the teachings of Dufy and featured jarring colors, which she juxtaposed for brilliant effect. Her use of color was said to presage the “push-pull” theories of color use that Hans Hofmann later applied to his work.
• Berlandina was born in France, where she studied
costume design and was a painting student of Raoul Dufy.
