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, the gallery’s flagship location 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 work groups: from early monochrome overpaintings from the 1950’s 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.
