Mathilde Berner-Roth (1873-1934), eine schreibende Malerin

  • Mathilde Roth belongs to a small group of Transylvanian ladies who, by the end of the 19th century, benefitted by the relative opening of the Transylvanian Saxon society, which permitted women to embrace a profession. The gifted young woman followed her vocation and studied for several years painting in Vienna and Munich, being in the aftermath active for almost a decade in her native city, Sibiu/Hermannstadt, where she exhibited paintings, organized Christmas exhibitions and gave art lessons. After her marriage, Mathilde left Transylvania in 1910 and settled in Zurich. Being also a gifted writer, she contributed travel reports to different periodicals. The paper aims at presenting the almost forgotten artist both, as a painter and as a writer.
