Installation view of the exhibition



Friedensreich Hundertwasser
23 Jan - 6 Mar 2004

First large-scale exhibition of the Austrian artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser in London since his retrospective at the Barbican in 1983. 

Filling both floors of the gallery, the exhibition included two dozen major paintings, some of which had never been on public display before, as well as drawings, wood cuts and silkscreens. 

Hundertwasser’s fluidity, bold colours and flat style are undeniably indebted to the Art Nouveau of his native Vienna and its turn-of-the-century artists including Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele.
