ELISABETH BARMARIN (1915 – 2010)
She trained at the Académie des Beaux-Arts in Brussels. She creates portraits and models but her speciality is sculpture, for which she has received many prizes. Elisabeth Barmarin started off with stylised figures. She also drew her inspiration in the theme of mother and child, although we often find birds in her sculptures. This artist often works with clay, wax, bronze and stone. She has also recently designed mirror boxes. Her works of art never seem complete, but are rather unfinished and infinite. They can be seen in various public places in Brussels, such as the Royal Observatory in Uccle. Elisabeth Barmarin also gave lessons at the “aux Soeurs de Sainte-Marie” school and in the “Institut supérieur d’Architecture de Saint-Luc”.
