Collection: Juzefa Katiliūtė

Juzefa Katiliūtė (1916–2009) was a painter and graphic artist. She was born on December 9, 1916, in Igliauka, Marijampolė district. In 1940, she graduated from the Kaunas School of Art, and in 1942, from the Vilnius Academy of Arts (she was a student of J. Vienožinskis). In 1945, she moved to Switzerland and in 1948, graduated from the Geneva School of Art. From 1952, she participated in exhibitions. In 1959, she was admitted to the Swiss Women Artists Association. She held solo exhibitions in Switzerland and Lithuania.

J. Katiliūtė painted in oil, acrylic, and ink, and created colorful silk screen prints. Her early paintings featured realistic figurative compositions, while her later works showcased abstracted landscape motifs, portraying primal natural phenomena and human experiences with expressive forms and vivid color combinations. It is said that in her works with "electrifying" colors, one sensitively listens to the vibrations of nature and the soul.

Her works are held in museums in Switzerland and the Lithuanian National Art Museum.

She was awarded the Cross of the Officer of the Order of Gediminas in 2005.
