Nikola Reiser – Retrospective


8 November 2018 – 3 February 2019


Continuing the cycle of retrospectives of notable Croatian artists whose oeuvres deserve to be seen again, revalued and their importance positioned in the context of domestic, but also of European art history, for November the Klovićevi dvori Gallery is preparing a Nikola Reiser retrospective to mark the centennial of his birth.

Nikola Reiser held an important and singular place in post-war Croatian art. Although he belonged to the generation of Croatian artists who came of age in the early fifties of the twentieth century, and who relied on the experiences of early-twentieth-century avant-gardes by adopting the new, liberated art form of abstraction,  Nikola Reiser nevertheless followed his own path and throughout his life nurtured his own, authentic art expression.

The retrospective will cover all the stages in the artist’s work and is planned to show about 200 artworks (paintings, portfolios of prints). The exhibition will be accompanied by a catalogue with reproductions of the works exhibited and original texts by Academician Tonko Maroević, art historian Iva Körbler and exhibition curator Danijela Marković on behalf of the Klovićevi dvori Gallery.
