Still looking for any info regarding the artist;

Luli August Sturdza.

All I could find so far is;

OLD AUGUST STURDZA, painter, graphic artist, decorating artist, was born on January 24, 1922 in Bucharest, as daughter of Elena and Henri August. She graduated from the "Nicolae Grigorescu" Institute of Fine Arts in Bucharest, the 1948 promotion, having as professors Eustatie Stoenescu in painting and Simion Iuca at engraving. In parallel with the plastic arts, he attended the courses of the Faculty of Law. Between 1949 and 1958 he lived in clandestinity. In April 1949 he ran away from home when Securitate came to arrest her. By the end of the 1950s, he had been hiding in various friends - including the Dinescu and Alexandru Paleologu families, where the architect Virgil Antonescu was hiding, always changing his address and leaving the house only at night. On December 30, 1950, with a fake identity card, he married Amzei Square City Hall with engineer Petre Sturdza, her name becoming Ioana Sturdza. She moved to Braila, where her husband worked, and four to five years later in Lupeni and then Petrosani. In 1958, before Christmas, she was arrested following a denunciation, but in one month she was released, for the information she could have given to the Securitate had become useless (the people helped by her ten years earlier had been arrested and most had already left prison). Between 1960 and 1979 she regularly participated in decorative art exhibitions in the country and abroad, where she exhibited ceramics, textiles, embroidery, painting on wood and glass, collages, posters.

Since 1963, she has performed film and theater costumes and decorations. In 1964, he collaborated with IL Caragiale on delicacy politics and won the film's plastic film award at Oberhausen, Austria, together with Marcel Bogos and Constantin Piliuţă. In 1967 he made the costumes for Tom Sawyer after Mark Twain, a short film produced by Buftea Studios in collaboration with Franco-London Film. In 1976 he made the costumes for Missing Gold of Incas after Jack London, TV series produced by Telemünchen. In 1978 he performed the costumes for Uncle Vanea by AP Chekhov, played at the Mic Theater in Bucharest, and won a prize at Novisad, Yugoslavia. Between 1967 and 1975 he was an artistic director at the "Decorativa" company in Bucharest. At the end of 1978 he left the country permanently, for one year he worked in Europe and in 1979 he had personal exhibitions in London and Geneva. established in the US in Los Angeles, where he continued to work as a plastic artist, and had personal exhibitions in Hollywood in 1984 and 1988.
