Anita Klein RE

The Apple Tree

ANITA KLEIN’s prints express the pleasures of every day, the fleeting, touching often funny moments that make life worth living. Drawing herself and her family in intimate detail, she captures the physical experience of life and makes it universal. Her work is followed by many who have charted her life alongside their own. The joy of swimming, of being with children, of lying on a branch in dappled shade or sitting down with a glass of wine all are expressed in a straight-forward witty style that rings true in masterful and moving works of art.

Born in Sydney, Australia, Anita Klein moved to England when she was 11. She studied at both Chelsea and the Slade School of Art where she was awarded the Henrique Scholarship in 1982 and 1983.  A painter as well as a printmaker, she is a fellow and past president of the Royal Society of Painter Printmakers (RE). Her work is in many private and public collections in Europe, the USA and Australia, including Arts Council England, the V&A, the British Library and the British Museum. She has exhibited across Britain, Europe, America and Australia.  She was awarded Printmaker of the Year at the 2020 Printfest International Festival of Printmaker. She divides her time between studios in London and Italy.

No British artist has more thoroughly explored the female experience of family in the past thirty years than Anita Klein’ — Guardian
