Ana Tzarev is an acclaimed artist with galleries in New York, London and Monaco. Her work centres on historic and present day rituals, cultural traditions and glimpses of daily life with insight developed from years of travel in Asia, Africa, the Pacific and numerous other regions, combined with a remarkable knowledge of global history, spirituality and the arts. Born in Croatia in 1937 and currently a resident of Monaco, Tzarev's bold use of colour and appreciation for pattern reflect her past history as a noted textile and fashion designer. In this monograph in two hundred colour plates, her art expresses the inspiring life story of a truly international artist who possesses a compassionate, socially conscious worldview.
