From childhood, Berthe Urasco plays the piano and sings, abandoning these activities around the age of thirty on the appearance of mental disorders that necessitate her internment in 1937 at the hospital of Bel-Air. During the period of her hospitalization, she executes many black pencil drawings in precise, rapid strokes which she then fills in with blocks of color, without preliminary studies or later corrections. Urasco depicts human figures with big eyes in a pastoral setting.
