This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

The following is from John Loyer:

Eva Fischer "survived" to paint the dark labyrinths of her memories, but her father, a rabbi, and 32 other family members were killed. She painted the tragedies from her assaulted memory for many years without ever showing her work. "I had hoped that painting would serve me as a cathartic ritual, but I cannot forget these horrors and I can't forgive."

Only in 1989 did Eva decide to show her paintings.

"The people had to know. I saw things that nobody had yet described." When the war was over she chose Rome as her adopted new home and there became part of a group of artists on Margutta Street - artists such as Mafai, Guttuso, Fazzini, Carlo Levi, Corrado Alvaro, De Chirico, Sandro Penna, Alfonso Gatto and others struggling to keep their inspiration aflame in the midst of a dark dictatorship.

During the early '50s Eva met Picasso in Luchino Visconti's home, and he encouraged her to continue with her landscape work and to also include architecture from southern Italy.

Soon after this period Eva transferred her work to Madrid where she also took active part in the debates of Juana Mordo's Atelier in the fight against Franco's fascism.

In the '60s Fischer exhibited her work in London in Lefevre's Gallery, then in Israel and the United States.
