Pregels life and art
reflect the turbulent history of the first half of the twentieth century.
Born in 1907 in Finland to Russian parents in exile from Czarist Russia,
she lived in Paris where she received her education at the Ecole Nationale
Superieure des Arts Decoratifs. She fled to the United States following
the outbreak of World War II. The cityscapes, still life, and other genres
exhibited on the site represent the outcome of a lifelong painting career
that span from the 1930s until her death in New York in 1984.
Alexandra Pregel had exhibited widely since 1933. Her paintings are displayed in various European museums and many private collections in France, U.S.A, Russia, and Israel.
