Katerina Wilczynski worked mainly as a landscape artist and her oeuvre includes a series of detailed architectural drawings executed in European cities including, as here, the Belgian city of Liège, made in 1946, the year of her exhibition at Roland, Browse & Delbanco. The catalogue introduction observed of her ‘simple and graceful style’ that ‘behind apparent casualness hides selective reasoning and classical restraint. […] her mother tongue is the pen, her idiom the black and white, and […] colour serves her drawing as a veil. For a veil enhances the beauty of a face by diffusing the regularity of the features and making the eye curious to penetrate behind. All her life she has expressed herself almost exclusively in drawings, true to herself in an exemplary way in as far as she gave up all attempts to use other mediums such as oil, which may have more weight and dignity, but which are alien to her talent’.
