Sylvia von Hartmann was born in 1942 and brought up in Hamburg.
She studied at Edinburgh College of Art from 1963-66.
Initially, she has taught at Coventry College of Art but has spent most of her time in Scotland since then.
She has been elected RSW, SSA and SSWA; and her work is in numerous collections including the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art.
This is another fine lithograph by von Hartmann which I have in my Iconic Edinburgh Online store.
It is a harder to find and much earlier work by her which is dated 1966.
It is signed and dated along the bottom of the image.
It is number 7 out of a very small edition of only 12 impressions - many of which I expect may have been lost over the last 50 years
The work is entitled, Adam and Eve. It shows the couple in a beautiful garden. They are entwined in an innocent embrace - they are nude and completely at one with nature. Their hair and the leaves on the trees are almost indistinguishable. However, it is a moment to be savoured - as if we look closely at this idyllic scene - we can see Eve holding in her hand an apple taken from the Tree of Knowledge - and she is about to offer this to Adam.
Again, this beautiful lively print by Sylvia von Hartmann is a highly personalised image of the event - and it is certainly a most fantastic and timeless one. As mentioned before, impressions of this print are nigh impossible to source - and this is reflected in my asking price for this stunning 1960s work by her.
This lovely print is beautifully presented with a cream colour mount and with a good quality heavy oak frame.
Nice and clean and in good condition - ready to hang on your wall.
