Gertrude O'Brady

 (1901/04 - 1985)
Gertrude O'Brady was active/lived in United States.  Gertrude OBrady is known for Painting.

Biography   Gertrude O'Brady


Gertrude O'Brady started to paint shortly before the 2nd World War.  She had suffered a severe illness shortly before traveling to Paris and, once there, she was given a box of paints to help take her mind off her suffering.

Incredibly, in two years she painted over sixty paintings of breathtaking quality. Indeed, her legacy was built on these works so that today she is generally regarded as the second greatest naive painter (Rousseau is, of course, the first).

She was sent to a concentration camp when the US entered the war.  She couldn't paint as she was given only pencil to work with but drew the suffering of her fellow inmates to powerful effect.

When she was released she stopped painting and drawing.
