Galerie Max Hetzler, London is pleased to announce Karel Appel’s (1921-2006) solo exhibition, Paris/New York, which explores two tenets of the artist’s practice that emerge out of his early years spent in the two cities: the nude figure and action painting. This exhibition traces Appel’s exploration of the nude from the 1950s to the 2000s. In parallel, a monumental painting made for Documenta III (1964) will be on view for the first time since, alongside other works from this period. This will be the first dedicated Appel exhibition in the UK in nearly four decades and the inaugural exhibition of our expanded gallery space at 41 Dover Street in London.
