The Official I.J. Berthe Hess website

I.J. Berthe Hess is an extraordinary painter; her work is war, strangely sensuous, atmospherically impressive and sensitive and yet her technique is so demanding, painstaking and apparently impossible as to be almost obsessional. The paint is built up sculpturally to a depth of two inches. Each brushstroke is short, sharp and infinitesimally small. The surface of the canvas becomes a myriad of grottos, which capture and contain the light reflecting it off at a thousand different angles. Peter Fuller, Synthesis - A New Magazine of the Arts, 1969.
