Footnotes

  • Wedding scenes are a common subject within Huvy's oeurvre often featuring garden ceremonies, blooming trees, shimmering chuppahs andjubilant flowers.

    Trained in Europe, Huvy was largely influenced by impressionist and post-impressionist techniques.

    After living in Europe with her family for many years, Huvy and her family returned to Israel to the coastal town of Herziliyah Pituach. As her children grew and her at-home time became more available, Huvy rekindled her life as an artist and an artist of Jewish themes. Her work has been exhibited in solo shows, group shows, and galleries in Israel, Europe, Scandinavia, and the United States.
