About

One of a kind painting by Noche Crist (1909- 2004). Noche Crist was an American artist born in Romania. Acrylic painting is made with plaster on wood and small pieces of mirror, which gives the painting a wonderful texture and depth. Painting is signed and titled on reverse "Waiting for a Visitor" and dated March 3, 2004. An exhibition catalogue from 2008 at the Katzen Art Museum in Washington D.C. is included. The Romanian born, self-taught artist is known for her acrylic paintings on wood panels and shaped transparent polyester resin sculptures that create images reminiscent of her childhood at her family's country estate outside Bucharest. Her works depict dreamlike, surreal scenes of partially dressed women posing seductively in opulent, sometimes fantastical settings. In other paintings and panels, she portrays bare-breasted women and felines sensually intertwined. Noche Crist was well known not only for her paintings and sculptures but also her storytelling and entertaining that helped turn her into a legendary figure in the Washington D.C. art scene. Her works gained a following among art patrons, including Olga Hirshhorn, one of Washington's leading art collectors.
