Selected works


Cardi Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of works by Swiss-French artist Gérard Schneider (1896 – 1986) in its London premises. A leading figure of post-war European painting, Schneider came to embody the Lyrical Abstraction movement that emerged in Paris during the 1950s.
Featuring works created between 1956 and 1981, this exhibition traces the evolution of Schneider’s formal vocabulary through the post-war years. The paintings on show demonstrate the artist’s tireless conviction in the poetics of abstraction, as well as the gradual adoption of a looser, more essential visual language influenced by Japanese calligraphy.
