Isabelle Bscher, the third-generation gallery owner of Galerie Gmurzynska, will present paintings, drawings, and books by Austrian artist Arnulf Rainer, a key figure of Art Informel and one of the most influential living artists of our day, at the gallery’s NYC flagship location at 43 East 78th Street.
This exhibition will offer the New York audience the unique opportunity to discover the rich complexity of this artist. The gallery presents a selection that is representative of Arnulf Rainer’s different periods and techniques, covering the most emblematic workgroups: from early monochrome overpaintings from the 1950s to the late, colorful, light layered drawings and paintings, encompassing motifs from the classical fields of knowledge, such as anatomy, flora, fauna, and landscapes. Furthermore, the exhibition includes some of Arnulf Rainer’s Buchübermalungen (book overpaintings), a widely unknown corpus of works.
The exhibition will be on display from April 15th through June 12th. The no-charge exhibition is open to the public on Monday – Friday from 12 PM to 5 PM. Appointments are also available by calling 212-535-5275.
