Bought a week ago at a market here in Sydney is a figure by a Hungarian Anna Berkovits. I've not been able to find out much about Anna B. I know that she exhibited at the Milan Triennale in 1933 and in New York in 1939. The figure has a werkstatte look about her and I enjoy the glazed dots that shimmer against the matt gown. She has a really cute nose and the eyes remind me of some of the Goldscheider masks. I have also seen a mask that she did in the 1930's.
I have seen another mark the Begébe ( Berkovits-Gáldy-Berkovits) and would appreciate any more info about that group as well.
Any more information about the artist and her work would be appreciated.
