Bettina Caro
The Blessing

Bettina Caro was born in Casablanca, Morocco in 1955 and grew up in Tangiers.  She is a direct descendant of Rabbi Yosef Caro (1488-1575) author of the great codification of Jewish law, the Shulchan Aruch.  From an early age, Caro showed an aptitude for drawing which was encouraged by her father, a keen amateur painter.  In 1973, Bettina Caro moved to Madrid and studied art and architecture at the University of Madrid. Bettina came to England in 1981. Since that time, she has worked continuously in oils, watercolour and gouache. Today, her subjects range from still life to breathtaking landscape and Jewish themes. Her unique approach to biblical subjects conveys the intensity of impressionism, an approach that the viewer is able to relate to with warmth and understanding. Her inspirations come mainly from her love of travel which has enabled her to combine her 'Jewish themes' with her passion for sun and colour found in her landscapes of Israel, Provence and Tuscany. You can feel the wonderful Mediterranean heat in her paintings and be entranced by the rich and varied colours. In 2011, a book focusing on Caro's work from the past 35 years was published by the LJCC.  The volume, the first publication about Moroccan-born Caro, accompanied her exhibition 'A Journey into Sepharad' and focuses primarily on Caro's Sepharad paintings of her native Morocco which are inspired by her childhood growing up in Tangiers.  There are also sections dedicated to her scenes of Jewish ritual, portraits of prominent members of the Sephardi community in Great Britain and landscpaes of Israel and Provence.
