On her concert tours she and her husband frequently visited artists' studios, galleries and museums in Europe, the United States and South America, and the couple formed personal and friendly connections with important painters, among them Kokoschka, Chagall, Van Dongen, Foujita and Pons. In many Gases these encounters were memorialized by a drawing or a painting of the portrait of Felicja Blumental, and a selection of these appears in this album. In most of the portraits Felicja is concentrated and attentive, introverted and refined. In each portrait one may discem the personal Couch of the artist; thus she is more colorful in the one by Kees van Dongen, who in his early period was a Fauvist painter, while in the portraits by Tsugouharu Foujita the coloring is more uniform and the delicate live is suffused with the tradition of Japanese art. While her portraits were being painted, Felicja Blumental drew the artists. For her portrait of the eighty-year-old Van Dongen she earned a compliment from the artist, which he wrote on the drawing itself (see p. 48): "It is me without being me — but who/ Kiki". Felicja Blumental's drawings, especially Chose from the fifties and sixties, reveal a new and penetrating perception. Using almost Grude, but sensitive and boldly expressive techniques, she captured the personalities of the personages who fascinated her. The list of the portraits she drew includes impressive figures: Picasso, Chagall, Man6-Katz, Juan Pons, Nathalie Gontcharova, Fontana. Besides painters she also drew composers, pianists, violinists, Bingers and other artists. At times the drawing was done hastily on random pieces of paper — invitations, catalogues, and concert programs, and at times in small albums which she carried in her purse. The drawings are moving testimonies of Felicja Blumental's cultural and artistic world: composers she worked with, who dedicated works to her, such as Heitor Villa-Lobos, or pianists she associated with, such as Arthur Rubinstein. She frequently drew the portrait of her husband, Markus Mizne, with whom she shared her love for art, music, painting and poetry. (Vorwort) Sprache: de Gewicht in Gramm: 400.
