A new exhibition opens at the Galerie Adriano Ribolzi on September 15 showcasing the work of Karl Stengel, winner of the GemlucArt prize in 2015.

The Hungarian artist has lived through turbulent times in the modern history of Europe. Born to a middleclass family in 1925 in Neusatz, on the banks of the Danube, he was imprisoned by the Russians during the Second World War. It took some time after the end of the conflict before he succeeded in gaining admission to a school of art, and following the Russian invasion of Hungary in 1956 he fled to Munich.

From his base in Germany, Stengel has exhibited in many European galleries.

Gemluc is a group of Monaco businesses that have joined together in the fight against cancer, under the high patronage of HSH Prince Albert and HRH Princess Caroline.

“Selected Works” is on exhibit at Galerie Adriano Ribolzi, at 3 avenue de l’Hermitage, next to the Hotel Hermitage in Monte-Carlo, until October 8. Thirty works of acrylic on canvas will be on display.
