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. This comprehensive album traces the development of her art from the vivacious childhood drawings through mature graphic works to the world of her small, delicate semi-abstract paintings of exquisite sensibility that deploy colour with an enchanting sense of magic. In his introduction István Hajdu presents a subtle portrait of an artist who refused to be pinned down by labels: “Ilka Gedő is one of the most significant, but at the same time one of the least known figures of twentieth-century Hungarian art. Although from her early youth onwards she had close contact with contemporary artists, art historians, writers and philosophers, her universally significant artistic oeuvre is unparalleled. This may be why her work is still largely unexplored. Ilka Gedő’s oeuvre is not simply a variation of contemporary artistic gestures, if it were, the possible analogies would undoubtedly help in its interpretation.”
