Margaretha Gubernale

Margaretha Gubernale’s sought-after pictures walk a tightrope: on the one hand she paints abstract thoughts and on the other, she uses natural forms.

Her inspirations include nature, anthroposophy and philosophy. She notes: “In each painting, I try to focus the symbolic parable as clearly as possible. In The Beauty and the Beast, the Beauty caresses the lion in loving devotion; the lion takes a reproachful look out of the picture, although he is himself the cause of the chaos even though his beauty comes from the wonderful flowers.”

Gubernale was born in Zug, Switzerland, where she currently works and lives.
