Great Master Series – Revelations and Soul Paintings (Elizabeth Sass Brunner & Elizabeth Brunner)
Director Jai Chandiram
Duration 35.30 minutes
Elizabeth Brunner the artist in search of tranquility-never gave up her quest for something beyond ordinary experience. Born in Budapest in July 1910, she had her formal education there and training in the Academy of Arts. She moved to India, along with her mother, with whom she had a deeper relationship, a link that was meaningful, creative in figurative sense and inspirational. She was fascinated by the diversity of India. Elizabeth has captured this diversity on her canvases. They spent time in Shantiniketan – the abode of peace. Not only was the presence of the great artist-poet Tagore a source of inspiration, but the place, with its exotic gardens, variety of colours and shades and the atmosphere of tranquility, had a sublime beauty and Elizabeth’s restless spirit could hardly remain unaffected.
She was keen to paint a portrait of Mahatma Gandhi, who had lightly asked her whether she wanted to paint his ‘soul’. But her portrait of Mahatma does have a halo around it. She caught the panorama of India scene of her canvas. Elizabeth and her mother had a fascination for mountains and she ultimately became an inhabitant of mountains.
