VLAICU IONESCU Avant-Garde Paintings and Drawings


Sep 6, 2019 to Oct 30, 2019
02:30 PM


A retrospective exhibition of the Avant-Garde paintings and drawings by Romanian-born artist, Vlaicu Ionescu will be on view at the Irvington Public Library from September 6 to October 30, 2019.  An opening reception will be held on Saturday, September 7, from 2-4:45 p.m.  This exhibition will display Ionescu's work from his middle artistic period (1960-1980), which
Dr. Doina Uricariu, in her 2012 monograph Vlaicu Ionescu The Artist, described as "expressionist-abstract-mystical". It occurs on the 50th anniversary of his 1969 exhibition in the University Library in Bucharest, which, along with a 1968 exhibition there, drew the attention of French and German art critics and led to an invitation to exhibit in Munich, which proved to be a major turning point in Ionescu's life and career.


Born in Romania, Vlaicu Ionescu (1922-2002) established himself in the United States in 1971. Ionescu exhibited in the United States, Germany, Romania, Italy, and France, and he received the Award of the "Leonardo da Vinci" Academy in Rome and the Award of the​ Académie Internationale de Lutèce, International Contest, Paris. A multifaceted artist and true "Renaissance man", Ionescu studied philosophy, mathematics, architecture, music, and the arts. He taught Philosophy of Art at the Volkshochschule in Munich and wrote books, conference papers, and articles about art.
