Bertha Halozan
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: unknown, Austria
Death: Nov. 25, 2004
New York, USA

A vibrant folk art painter who sold her small, unique and cheerful works on a folding table in midtown Manhattan.

A self-taught artist who once sang at Carnegie Hall, Ms. Halozan came to the United States from Graz, Austria. Many of her folk art paintings are characterized by the motif of the Statue of Liberty and the Goodyear blimp (or phrase), as well as pastoral scenes.

She began to paint after suffering a stroke, and her paintings reflect a strong positive outlook.

Living in a residential hotel, she often set up her sidewalk gallery nearby. On the back of each painting, she would tape photocopies of press clippings and photos, and she painted the frames herself as a final touch.

Her paintings are now available in museums and through folk-art dealers nationwide.
