Gedő, Ilka Budapest, 1921 - 1985, Budapest
Ilka Gedő (1921-1985) was a gifted, courageous and independent artist who quietly and compassionately recorded human life and a world of suffering and tumultuous change. The development of her art spans from the vivacious childhood drawings through mature graphic works to the world of delicate semi-abstract paintings of exquisite sensibility that deploy colour with an enchanting sense of magic. Ilka Gedő first gained international prominence when her work was presented in Glasgow in 1985 and 1989, and then in New York in 1994 and 1995 with outstanding success. The artist's works are represented in major public collections in Hungary and abroad: The National Gallery of Hungary, Budapest; Jewish Museum of Hungary, Budapest; King St. Stephen's Museum, Székesfehérvár, Hungary; Yad Vashem Art Museum, Jerusalem; Israel Museum, Jerusalem; British Museum (Department of Prints and Drawings); Kunstmuseum Düsseldorf (Department of Prints and Drawings); The Jewish Museum, New York.
