Biehle Brothers

Decorative Painting

Nora Biehle continues a tradition of fine decorative painting begun by her ancestors, the Biehle Brothers.  In 1880, these master craftsmen immigrated to Ohio from the Alsace region bordering Germany and France.  American industrialists sought decorative artists to embellish their mansions, and the Biehle Brothers answered that call.  Nora combines this rich cultural legacy with her international experience and studies in fine and applied arts.  Fast forward to 21st century New York.

Nora Biehle’s Creation Series is based on verses from the book of Genesis:

1 In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. 2 The earth was without form and void, and the darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. . . .

6 And God said, “Let there be an expanse in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters.” 7 And God made the expanse and separated the waters that were under the expanse from the waters that were above the expanse. And it was so. 8 And God called the expanse Heaven. And there was evening and there was morning, the second day.
