As the title suggests, Elizabeth
Brunner: Her Life- Her Words, is a delightful collection of stories
written by the Hungarian artist who came to India in 1930 with her
mother, Elizabeth Sass Brunner, and made it her home. The book, with
an introduction by Imre Lazar, contains her experiences in this
country. It also contains rare photographs and beautiful paintings
that the Brunners created.
The talented artists are well known in India and Hungary. Their art
reflects their experiences in various parts of the world, highlighting
their encounters with personalities such as Rabindranath Tagore,
Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru and the Dalai Lama, among others.
Published on the occasion of the
birth centenary of Elizabeth Brunner, the book is a treasure, both in
words and images. It is all the more special because of the deep love
the mother and daughter had for India.
