Now to September 23, 2018 see Stefan Luchian
More than ninety pastels, watercolours and drawings made by Ştefan Luchian (1868-1916) throughout his career trace the artist’s journey from his brief submission to Modern Style influences to a fully-fledged, personal idiom based on the free use of colour. This chronological and technical survey of Luchian’s oeuvre highlights his contribution to the development of local graphic art at a time Romania discovered and defined its own modernity.
The selection ranges from the well-known Jugendstil-like cover of the Ileana magazine to many pastels and watercolours made as studies for some of his most popular works such as Safta the flower girl, Nicolae the lute player, or the Portrait of Mrs. Olivier. Landscapes from Brebu and the Ialomiţa plain and his ever popular flower still-lives (Carnations, Roses, Corn-flowers, Wild Flowers) reveal the force of his pastels, their painterly quality, vivid colour range and spontaineity.
