Dana Schobel-Roman a portrait of an artist


 
"I have been in dialogue with children's literature for many years now, a genre which I consider very seriously. Every book I illustrated meant for me a challenge, a unique experience, as a writer cannot repeat his inner self from one page to another. How do I approach this literature? Where the text does not call me there is no pleasure in me to illustrate at all, so I refrain from it as I would from half measures."
 
Dana Schobel-Roman was born on March 3, 1952 (Bucharest) and died on December 1, 2003. She graduated from The Institute of Arts "Nicolae Grigorescu" Bucharest (1976) - Prof. Vasile Kazar's class. Since graduation she worked for the Graphics Department of the Romanian Television (TVR).
She had numerous editorial collaborations, particularly with Ion Creanga Publishing House. She participated in various international exhibitions dedicated to illustration (Barcelona, Brno, Bologna, Rijeka, Belgrade, Bratislava) and had four solo exhibitions. She also did theatre and film posters, record covers for Electrecord, illustrations for filmstrips, engravings and painting.
She was awarded the Prize for the most beautiful children books « Of old, with elephants » (1984), "Small Animal Fair" (1985), "The School of Music" (1986), The Youth Award for "Radu's Travels "(1984) and Little Reader's trophy for " The Zebra and the algebra "(1989).
She died in her workshop in the Romanian Television, following a stroke. She was honoured posthumously The Award for children's book illustration and entire artistic activity. Retrospective exhibitions had been organised at the UNESCO-Romania headquarters, Palace of Parliament (2004), Romanian Literature Museum, Art Museum of Craiova (2005) and Cotroceni Museum (2006).
In 2007, Artemis Publishing House, under the guidance of her mother, Dorina Schobel, curator at the National Museum of Art, has published an impressive monographic album, from which we extracted numerous biographical data for this presentation.
