Group: New Barbizon

Artists, University of Texas at Austin, Spring 2017

New Barbizon is a celebrated collective of five painters—Zoya Cherkassky, Olga Kundina, Anna Lukashevsky, Asya Lukin, and Natalia Zourabova—all of whom were born and trained in the former USSR and have been working together in Israel since 2011. They have returned to the tradition of the 19th century French realist painters of the Barbizon School, who painted nature from observation--but they have done so with a modern twist. Rather than painting in the forest, they place their easels in urban settings.  They group will teach at the University of Texas at Austin as part of the Schusterman Visiting Israeli Artist Program from January 17, 2017 to May 5, 2017.
