Cecilia Horwitz Pair of Portraits Man & Woman early 1930s Oil on Canvas P835 SOLD

We are fascinated by this couple, this man and this woman: these are knockout portraits. alive, specific. The vitality of youth and the realities of hard times combine in both their faces. Utterly period and at the same as readable as our own contemporaries. This terrific painter, quite simply, has made them live. What do we know about the artist? Regrettably little.
