It is not an overstatement to say that they don't make artists like Risa Moldovan anymore. Risa died in January, 2016. Risa painted still-life compositions in the precise style of the Dutch Masters, with special attention to detail and lighting.
Risa Moldovan was an artist all of her life. Beginning at age seven she accepted an invitation to attend the Carnegie Museum's Children's classes. As a young adult she worked with many mediums, but preferred pen & ink. Through this medium she was able to refine her drawing and composition skills.
She taught at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh.
Throughout her career, Risa won many awards. She was a member of the Pennsylvania State committee of the National Museum of Women in the Arts.
Her art is in many private collections and corporations. Her work has been shown in regional museums and she exhibits in galleries around the country.
Galleries Maurice Sternberg was fortunate to represent the artist's work for over a decade. Now, her family has chosen to release more of her work to the public for the first time since her passing.
