Alicia Rymowicz was a Russian/Belgian artist who was born in Kasan/Russia in 1907 and who died in 1992. She was a painter and watercolourist. She spent some time in China and Japan and received her first artistic training there. She then stayed in Geneva/Switzerland where she perfected her technique under the guidance of the sculptor E. Vibert and the painters Blanchet and Valentine Metein-Gilliart. Settled in Antwerp in 1932, where she received support and advice from Isidore Opsomer, who provided her with a studio in the Academy. Realized, among other things, female figures, nudes, flowers, Scheldt faces. From the press: “There are many flowers, always loose and freely brushed, sturdy in their own plant strength and refined in their own glow. There are also landscapes from here and elsewhere, especially marines from the Scheldt side, with a mother-of-pearl sheen, which they share with the fine, distinguished nude figures.” (1968) Exhibited in the Studio H. De Braeckeleer in Antwerp in 1960 and 1968, in Huis Hellemans in Edegem in 1984. Mentioned in BAS II and Two centuries of signatures of Belgian artists. Source: Piron.
