Naive Surrealist Folk Art Oil Painting on Canvas ANN GRIFFIN-BERNSTORFF
Naive Surrealist Folk Art Oil Painting on Canvas – ANN GRIFFIN-BERNSTORFF. This is an original oil on canvas in a folk art, naive surrealist style by Ann Griffin-Bernstorff, signed to corner & dated 1988. With Gallery label for the Portal Gallery of Grafton St & Bond St, London W1. Titled’Gemini’, depicting two doll like women with infants beside an Elizabethan cradle. Framed size 27″ x 23″ (inches). Ann Griffin-Bernstorff is a native of County Limerick. Having trained as a horticulturist in France, she won the Taylor Art Scholarship in 1963, which saw her move to Paris to study at the Atelier Yves Brayer and Ecole des Beaux Arts. She then came to Dublin where she spent five years training and working as a picture restorer. In 1957 she married a Danish aristocrat, Count Gunnar Bernstorff, and they settled in Berkely Forest, an historic house near New Ross. Ann Griffin-Bernstorff’s art is encouraged by a number of influences. Having amassed a fine collection of antique dolls and costumes, her work conveys playful, almost storybook scenarios. She looks to Botticelli as well as early Dutch and Flemish artists. Even at a glance, the influence of the Old Masters is evident, but at the same time Anns work inspires an element of fun, drawn straight from her own imagination. The figures depicted in her paintings are plump and pale faced, their attire plucked from a stage costume wardrobe. Each scene is whimsical, often portraying brightly painted images of mythical creatures before a theatrical backdrop. Griffin-Bernstorf’s work is to be found in the following Irish public collections: the Office of Public Works, National Self Portrait Collection, University of Limerick and the Lambert Modern Art Collection, Irish Museum of Modern Art, Kilmainham, Dublin. She has exhibited widely in Dublin, Wexford and Derry and internationally in London, Chicago, New York and Miami.
