Eleanor Karp Bio

Through the last 25 years of Eleanor's life, she was a prolific painter, leaving behind over 80 paintings - almost all, oil on 4' x 6' masonite panels.

Gathering strong inspiration from the Masters (primarily Rembrandt) she worked diligently through her life to replicate the palette and methods used in his time. Her "discovery" was finding a complete palette of colors within the simplicity of sienna.

Many of the pieces combine 2 to 4 separate panels to comprise one large painting. The sets shown here vary in shade only on this site, due to photographic restrictions. However, in reality, they create a seamless work of art.
