The World of Löwendal’s Characters exhibition opens Friday, 13 October, at 18.00 at The Art Collections Museum. Organized by the National Museum of Art of Romania (MNAR) and the Löwendal Foundation the exhibition marks the 120th birth anniversary of George Löwendal (1897- 1964).

The exhibition reveals the creative force of a prolific artist whose works cover different styles and genres, ranging from avant-garde stage design to haunting expressionist portraits, from landscapes bearing the imprint of Impressionism and Post-Impressionism to neo-Byzantine religious painting. Approximately 120 works illustrate Löwendal's diverse artistic output; they include paintings, stage design and costume sketches made during his years in Chernivtsi, graphic art, sketches from the totalitarian period, posters and advertisments.

Organized by the National Museum of Art of Romania and the Löwendal Foundation.
Partner: The National Theater Festival (FNT).
