Artist: Rosita Gottlieb
1993,  18” x 24” x 1.5”, Oil on Canvas.

The artwork is signed and ready to hang with hardware.


Costa Rica-born Rosita Gottlieb painted professionally for more than a half-century and mastered the art of painting with the spatula, the artist’s knife.

Her first exhibition was in 1963 at the National Art Institute in Panama City. Over the years she exhibited in galleries worldwide, including Mexico City, Tel Aviv, London, San Francisco, Taipei, Hong Kong, the Los Angeles area, and San Jose, Costa Rica. Her last exhibit was in 2015 at the Thousand Oaks, CA Civic Arts Plaza. She passed away in 2016 at age 85.

Rosita painted with passion and energy, and said that “ I painted my truth, as I saw and experienced life.” During her long career, Rosita gained a reputation as a bold colorist. Her primary medium was oil, to which she added marble sand, beeswax, wire mesh, and other materials, to create thickly textured paintings.  She also added faces and figures in the background of her paintings, a second layer of her canvas. In a 1971 article on her work, she was quoted as saying: “I’m very pleased when people who have bought my paintings tell me they keep finding new things in the canvases, three, four years later.”  Or even decades later.

“Her jammy colors bubble and eddy across extraordinary canvases,” wrote James Heard, of the London Arts Review, during a London exhibition in 1973. Aubrey Simpson, editor of the United Airline’s inflight magazine Hemispheres, wrote this about her work for a January 1994 cover article:

“Her expressionistic paintings are a visual diary of her relentless spiritual search. She uses the knife to create a rich, hypnotic, multidimensional effect.

About Artwork from the artist’s Note

<Rain Forest Beach #2> is a work that Rosita Gottlieb exhibited at the Tustin Renaissance Gallery in 1996. Rosita was greatly inspired by nature and had produced many series of works, but this is one of the last and longest-running forest series in her career. As a Costa Rican artist, she misses the tropical natural scenery of her home country, and many of her paintings feature waterfalls and dense forests. Thickly applied oil paints and many mixed media materials to add a sense of reality tempt the sense of touch, and looking at her paintings makes us feel as if we are in a forest.
