FELICJA BLUMENTAL

This page is dedicated to a lesser known aspect of the pianist Felicja Blumental, her practice of expressing herself in drawing, her connections with painters, and her deep involvement with the visual arts.


On her concert tours she and her husband visited artists' studios, galleries and museums all over the world. In many cases these encounters were memorialized by a drawing or painting of Felicja Blumental. While her portraits were being painted, Felicja Blumental drew the artists.

Her drawings reveal a new and penetrating perception. Using almost crude marks, she captured the personalities of the personages who fascinated her. Beside painters she also drew composers, pianists, violinists, singers and other artists. At times the drawings were done hastily on random pieces of paper, and at times in small albums which she carried in her purse.
