Sylvia von Hartmann was born in 1942 and brought up in Hamburg.
She studied at Edinburgh College of Art from 1963-66.
Initially, she taught at Coventry College of Art but has spent most of her time in Scotland since then.
She has been elected to the 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 at the bottom of the image.
It is number 9 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 personalized image of the event - and it is certainly a most fantastic and timeless one. As mentioned before, impressions of this print are nigh on impossible to source - and this is reflected in my asking price for this stunning 1960s work by her.
Nice and clean and in generally good condition (no tears or foxing to the paper etc). It is ready to hang on your wall and comes with its original gold-tone frame as photographed.
