Franciszka Themerson @ L'etrangere

3 November 2016 - 16 December 2016

a solo exhibition of paintings, drawings and calligrammes by Franciszka Themerson –  a seminal figure in the Polish pre-war avant-garde. She developed her unique pictorial language during the shifting years of pre- and post-war Europe, settling in Britain in 1943. Together with her husband, writer, poet and film maker, Stefan Themerson, she was involved with experimental film and avant-garde publishing. Her personal domain, however. focused on painting, drawing and theatre sets and costume design.
This exhibition brings together Franciszka’s three paintings completed in 1972 and a selection of drawings, dated from 1955 to 1986, which demonstrate the breadth of her work.
