This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Ghitta Caiserman was born in Montreal to Romanian emigrant parents on March 02, 1923.  She studied with Alexander Bercovitch between 1931 and 1933, and at the age of 11 received an honourable mention at the Art Association of Montreal's Spring Exhibition.

Caiserman attended Parson’s School of Design in New York City and from there the American Artists’ School, and the Art Students League where she studied with Harry Sternberg. In addition, she studied with Moses and Raphael Soyer at the New Art School. In 1947 she and her then-husband Alfred Pinsky began the Montreal Artists School. In 1954 she gave birth to her daughter Käthe.   In 1961-1962 Caiserman-Roth studied with Albert Dumouchel at the École des Beaux Arts in Montreal under a Canada Council Senior Fellowship.

Caiserman-Roth's figurative work reflects her concern with composition, light and colour and she often explores social themes in her work. In the 1950's her investigations turned toward still life and interiors. The 1960's continued with these themes as well as religious/social concerns. The 1970's saw Caiserman-Roth move toward a more surrealist approach in her work and in the 1980's and 1990's her work became increasingly abstract. In the 1990's Caiserman-Roth returned to the theme of dolls and their association with death for her, which she had touched on in the 1970's.

Over her career, Caiserman-Roth taught at Concordia University and the Saidye Bronfman Centre for the Arts in Montréal, Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario, Mount Allison University in Sackville, New Brunswick, and the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Caiserman-Roth was the winner of numerous awards, including the Canadian Centennial Medal, Canada Council Purchase Awards, and Best Graphic Image Award at the Ontario Society of Artists, and the O'Keefe prize. She was a member of the Royal Canadian Academy, the Conseil des artistes peintres du Québec, and the Conseil québecois de l’estampe.
