“Cow Portraits” is a collection of paintings in oil and mixed media inspired by photos of cows that the artist has taken over the years. These are intimate portraits. The viewer is brought face-to-face with the fullness and dignity of these large animals. Each cow’s attitude, at the moment of encounter with the artist, comes to life through the expression in their eyes.

Nancy Ghitman began painting more than 30 years ago when studying at the Academy des Beaux Arts in Liege, Belgium. Since that time, she has received inspiration from several teachers affiliated with art schools in New York and Massachusetts. After moving to the Berkshires full time and retiring from teaching, Ms. Ghitman has devoted herself to painting as her primary occupation. She has created several different series of paintings that were exhibited in the Berkshire area.

She views herself as a primitive expressionist: artistic interpretation and expression is the key to her creative work. She believes that the essence and primal quality of the subject is equally important as it allows the creative moment to emerge and breathe through the image. She considers the creative process to be one of the most important factors that drives her work often leading her to explore and mix different mediums. The result is often a medley of intention and spontaneity in paintings that give new life to familiar forms.
