Louisa Matthiasdottir

Louisa Matthiasdottir was born in Iceland in 1917. As a young woman she studied painting in Denmark and Paris  then moved to New York in 1942, where she settled and continued to live and work until her death in 2000. Yet Iceland remained this artist's native landscape and the one she continued to paint most often.
