Eva Makk


Mountain Landscape

Original Oil on Canvas

Image Size 24 x 36

Eva's parents were of a noble Hungarian family and at the time of her birth in Ethiopia, her landowner father was advisor to Emperor Haile Selassie. He and his wife nurtured the brightness of their baby daughter who showed a precocious artistic talent and inquisitiveness early on that was far beyond her years.

At four years of age, she was drawing what she felt. When she depicted a scene, it contained an essence of the noble and pure that exists in all life when perceived with a deep reverence and sensitivity. That a four-year-old child comprehended and was able to express this deep truth, indicated a genius that needed delicate and careful cultivation.

She received formal education in private schools in several countries of Africa as well as from tutors throughout her childhood. When unrest became prevalent in Africa, the family moved to France where Eva enrolled in the Academy of Fine Arts in Paris. After completing her studies summa cum laude, they moved to Rome where she enrolled in the Academy of Fine Arts; there she met Americo. When Dr. Holusa, her father, resolved to leave war-scarred Europe for South America, Americo joined the family. Americo and Eva were married in Brazil.

Eva's original art is prized by collectors around the world. And is in both private, corperate and museum collections.
