Fayga Perla Ostrower was born in Lodz, Poland in 1920, and died in Rio de Janeiro in 2001. Her family, who were Jewish (Krakowski), moved to Germany in 1924, and fled to Belgium in 1932; they emigrated to Brazil 2 years later. Fayga married Heinz Ostrower, a German historian/philosopher, and they had 2 children. She studied drawing at the Brazilian Ass'n of Fine Arts in Rio de Janeiro, and graphic arts at the Getulio Vargas Foundation. In 1948 she had a solo exhibition at Itapetininga Gallery in Sao Paolo. Her early style echoed the work of German expressionist Kathe Kollwitz. She went on to exhibit throughout Brazil and abroad. In 1952, she rec'd a Fullbright Scholarship and went to study at the Brooklyn Museum. During this time, she began to be greatly influenced by the works of Paul Cezanne, and her work took a turn past cubism into abstraction. Her work is hung in the major museums of Brazil and also in Europe and the Americas. She rec'd the Nat'l Grand Prize for Engraving at the 1957 Sao Paolo Biennale; the Internat'l Prize at the 1958 Venice Biennale; and awards at the Florence, Mexico and Buenos Aires Biennales. She lectured at Spellman College, Atlanta, and at Slade School of Fine Art, London. She was president of the Brazilian Ass'n of Arts 1963-66, and was an honorary member of the Academy of Art and Design in Florence. She rec'd the Brazilian Order of Cultural Merits in 1997.
