A Painting by Kurt von Meier?


One of the effects of this website is viewers around the globe. Accordingly, a gentleman in New Zealand by the name of Xuan Titman made contact and said he had a painting his mother told him was given to her by Kurt. His mother was studying fine arts in the early 1960s, though died twenty years ago. Kurt taught in New Zealand in the early 1960s for two years as a visiting professor at the University of Auckland, and a web search turns up evidence of an art exhibition in which a painting by Kurt was listed. This could be it! Above is a photo of the front and back of the canvas; it clearly says "von Meier." Mr. Titman says his mother told him it was "a lady by a tree."
