Anita Klein is an artist of the everyday and the personal. For more than forty years, she has produced thousands of paintings, prints and drawings depicting her immediate family – husband, daughters, grandchildren, and herself – going about the very ordinary activities of daily life: watching television, cooking, reading, driving to school, soaking in the bath, getting dressed, cleaning the house, choosing a pet, going on holiday, or just cuddling up and sharing tender moments with loved ones. She captures these seemingly unremarkable domestic scenes with such humour, sensitivity and beauty to create an intimate visual journal with which everyone can identify. This book is a selection of around five hundred of the artist’s best-loved prints going back to her students days. It presents a charming chronological record of the family’s day-to-day life through the decades.
