A major art gallery, Emilia Suciu Gallery, from Ettlingen , Germany, opened its doors to a historical event for the Romanian contemporary art, the group show ‘’Romanian Artists Abroad/The Last 70 years’’, from 1st of December 2012 to 31st of January 2013.


The art lovers may admire 90 artworks by 28 major visual artists, born in Romania, but who lived a big part of their life abroad (France, Germany, Great Britain, USA, Switzerland, etc): George Apostu, Friedrich von Bömches, Ioan Bunus, Adina Caloenescu, Mircea Ciobanu, Roman Cotosman, Doru Covrig, Natalia Dumitresco, Ingo Glass, Étienne Hajdu, Ion Isaila, Mirela Anura, Alexandre Istrati, Peter Jacobi, Zoltán Kemény, Julian Mereuta, Eva Naghi, Ion Nicodim, Paul Neagu, Henri Nouveau, Ion Pacea, Roland Phelps, Dana Roman, Victor Roman, Diet Sayler, Sandor Simon, Daniel Spoerri, Mattis Teutsch.

I already published an art review about Doru Covrig, one of the best all times Romanian visual artists, in the prestigious international cultural revue, Levure littéraire,


Most of them are well-known both by the Romanian and international art lovers, like George Apostu, Mircea Ciobanu, Roman Cotosman, Doru Covrig, Natalia Dumitrescu, Alexandre Istrati, Ion Nicodim, Paul Neagu, Ion Pacea, Victor Roman, Daniel Spoerri and Mattis Teutsch, but there are also Romanian born visual artists who are very famous abroad, but less known in their home-country, like Friedrich von Bömches, Ingo Glass, Peter Jacobi, Zoltán Kemény, Julian Mereuta, Henri Nouveau, Roland Phelps or Diet Sayler.


The gallerist, Emilia Suciu, a German born Romanian art lover and collector, told me that she is in love since many decades with the Romanian contemporary art, a very competitive one on the international art scene, in her opinion. This year Emilia Suciu Art Gallery, focused on Constructivist-concrete art, cynetic and Op art, will celebrate 25 years of high quality presence on the German and international art market.
