Art admirers and curious visitors are welcome to attend the opening of abstract art exhibition of a prominent Lithuanian artist Adomas Galdikas. The exhibition will be open at the library until January 15th, 2020.
Adomas Galdikas (1893–1969) is a Lithuanian painter, graphic artist, scenographer. He has painted many landscapes, still lifes, portraits, abstract compositions, paintings on panels at Lithuanian art pavilions in international exhibitions in Paris and New York, created printouts, book illustrations, drawings and designed 17 State Theatre performances.
Early works (mostly graphic paintings and paintings of Lithuanian landscapes) are realistic. In later works (especially in paintings) the influence of expressionism is present. Styles of art deco and folk art were also used. Since the 1950s A. Galdikas’ works were mainly abstractions. The artwork can be mostly characterized as clear in composition, having generalized and expressive forms and vivid colouring.
A. Galdikas’ works have been purchased by:
- Stieglitz Museum of Applied Arts (St. Petersburg);
- National M. K. Čiurlionis Museum of Art (Kaunas);
- Lithuanian Art Museum (Vilnius);
