Artist Ernestine Bucking

 Artist  Ernestine Bucking



The serene and uplifting style of classically trained and highly honored Austrian-born artist and sculptor Ernestine Bucking is aptly considered to be “Romantic Realism”. 


The internationally recognized artist has hosted many one-woman shows across the nation, and has received numerous awards over the past four decades. 


Ernestine paints in watercolor, acrylic and oil to gently capture on canvas diverse wildlife and floral wonders of the natural world. Also, she enjoys working in mixed media. Her lifelong quest for honesty in her paintings is fulfilled by the careful use of tones and shades that mirror those that appear in nature.


An avid art collector commented: “Birds in her paintings seem to move” … and her unique work inspired a noted art critic to write: “Bucking’s paintings seem to capture the experience of looking out the window at the same scene every day yet seeing something different each time.” 


Her work is in numerous public and private collections from Russia to Caracas. Many of her paintings and sculpture pieces are on display at corporations, businesses, and colleges and universities. Ernestine’s creativity was obviously inherited from her family. She has studied art and sculpture in Switzerland, France, England and Germany.


Ernestine has a rich heritage of painters, musicians, poets and composers that instill her works. Her talents extend to teaching art, and creating sculptures. Her murals that can be viewed at the Wildlife Educational Center in Brevard, NC, have expanded her reputation. She has mounted more than 100 one-woman shows and won numerous awards. Her paintings are featured in many public and private collections.
