Elizabeth Brunner

Her Life-Her Words Edited by Imre LazarElizabeth Brunner
Elizabeth Brunner: Her Life–Her Words, is a delightful collection of stories written by the Hungarian artist who came to India in 1930 with her mother, Elizabeth Sass Brunner, and made it her home. The book, with an introduction by Dr. Imre Lázár, contains her experiences in this country, rare photographs and beautiful paintings that the Brunners created.Well known in India and Hungary, their art reflects their experiences in various parts of the world, highlighting their encounters with personalities such as Rabindranath Tagore, Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru and the Dalai Lama, among others. Gandhiji had once teased her, ‘Can you paint my soul in half-an-hour?’ Elizabeth Brunner has without doubt tried to paint the soul of India over the seventy years she spent here through her paintings.Published on the occasion of the birth centenary of Elizabeth Brunner, this book is all the more special because of the deep love the mother and daughter had for India.
