Louisa Matthíasdóttir (1917-2000) was amazing artist. She used her life, family and things around her as inspirations, using clear colors and strong vision of an subject. Louisa moved to New York in 1942 where she painted at home every day. She had many exhibitions and in 1960 she exhibited every year in a Robert Schoelkopf Gallery in New York with a good reviews. This weekend I went to see her at Kjarvalstaðir in Reykjavík.
If you are in Reykjavík within the next three weeks you should definitely go, don't miss this show!
