Anna May-Rychter watercolors


Anna May-Rychter (1864–1955) was born in Bavaria and learned to paint. She fell in love with Polish artist Tadeusz Rychter, who left his first wife for Anna. But being a Catholic he couldn't obtain a divorce. Because they faced social disapproval in Europe for not being properly married, they departed to live in Jerusalem, which provided the subjects for her watercolors.

Life sometimes takes us to unexpected places. Wherever those places might be, find your inspiration there.

Interesting style - her colors are warm, even when blue. And I see a cross on top of that building...was this painting of a Christian church or organization in Israel?
