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 in my Etsy store.
It dates to 1992 and is signed and titled in white pencil along the bottom of the image.
Apologies for any reflections / white flashing in my photographs of the work - with its black background it was rather tricky to photograph the image through the glass of the frame.
The work is entitled White Horse Close. This is a historic courtyard sited off the Canongate at the foot of the Royal Mile. The close is considered perhaps one of the most picturesque groups of buildings in the Old Town of Edinburgh.
This lively print by Sylvia von Hartmann is a highly personalised image of the location - and it is certainly a most appealing one. Impressions of this print are hard to source - and this is reflected in my asking price for this dramatic work by her.
This lovely print is beautifully presented with a cream colour mount and with a good quality heavy oak frame. The work was originally retailed through the Open Eye Gallery - when they were based in Cumberland Street in Edinburgh (their vintage label is on the back of the frame, as photographed).
Frame size: 54 x 72 cm. Image size: 34.5 x 53 cm.
Nice and clean and in good condition - ready to hang on your wall.
