“Paintings: 1950- 2010” will feature the art of 86-year-old artist, Eva Deutsch Costabel. Ms. Costabel, a Holocaust survivor, fled her native Zagreb in 1941 during the Nazi occupation. After her internment at an Italian concentration camp in Croatia, she joined with the Yugoslav resistance as an army nurse and staff artist for resistance publications. Her art training continued after the war in Rome at the Academy of Fine Arts and later at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. She has called New York her home since 1949. The solo show at Gallery 307 will exhibit Ms. Costabel’s paintings and drawings from the early 1950s through 2010. Her style flows between realist, semi-abstract and abstract, with her striking use of color being the standard throughout her work.
