Maria Bertrán

BIOGRAPHY

For over thirty-five years Maria Bertrán has dedicated herself to her oil on linen painting. Throughout the years her artwork has acquired a unique depth and richness reflecting her Latin origins and compositional preferences. Bertrán’s landscapes, still lives and figurative work recall the exploratory period of the Expressionists, experimenting with bold color combinations and surface texture while retaining classical themes, a certain depth of field, and structured compositions.
