The Hungarian National Gallery, Budapest presents a chamber exhibition to mark the centennial of Ilka Gedő’s birth. The selection comprises about fifty works, mainly from the artist’s early period. Ilka Gedő belonged among those special, lonely Hungarian artists with a unique creative method who did not affiliate themselves to traditional avant-garde trends. The disarming sincerity coupled with introspective focus in her self portraits makes her work unrivalled in European graphic art. Her illustrations can be found in the most prominent international collections, including the Albertina in Vienna, the British Museum in London, the Metropolitan Museum in New York, and in the Yad Vashem Art Museum in Jerusalem.
