Born in Germany just a year before Hitler came into power, Sidonie Caron's German-Jewish family was able to escape to Holland, which all too quickly became as unsafe as the homeland from which they'd run. The family was again assisted in emigrating, this time to a war-torn, but free, England.
Always an artist, Caron received her education from the St. Martin's School of Art and the Central School of Art, both in London. Drawn by a strong love for the American landscape, Caron came to the United States in the 1960s, where she made Oregon home. Beloved and embraced by the area art community, Caron's work, from her sweeping impressionist views of the western landscape to her intimate nudes or the more politically intriguing "Workers of the World" series, is a frequent addition to museums (Portland Art Museum, Oregon Jewish Museum, Maryhill Museum of Art), galleries, and shows throughout the United States.
Her paintings are held in many well-known collections, those as vastly different as the Microsoft Corporation, the City of Portland, Oregon, and the US State Department. Sidonie Caron is also among the most popular of those artists chosen for the Portland Art Museum's unique "Art Sales/Rental Program."
