JB Berkow

Producing exquisite works of stunning realism, JB Berkow has been showing professionally for the last twenty-five years. Capturing a special kind of richness and strength, her paintings reflect her mastery of the art of values and contrast. JB’s recurring theme is to place man-made objects into the lushness of a natural setting. She feels pitting one against the other heightens the beauty of both. JB Berkow believes her passion for European scenes comes from how she was raised. Coming to America when she was 15, JB’s mother continued to retain her heritage into adulthood and raised JB in a very traditional European manner. Her intense love and reverence for the age and beauty of her chosen subjects comes through in the intricate details and rich colors that she mixes and tubes herself. JB Berkow’s work has such an overpowering sense of reality that most people feel they can enter her scenes by just walking into the canvas. One art critic recently described it as, ”art you can live in.”

Berkow’s paintings have been represented by many galleries around the world and have appeared in several prestigious juried competitions. In addition, her works are in numerous private and corporate collections including the Performing Arts Center at Boston University, the West Palm Beach International Airport, and the Vatican Museum in Italy.
