Retrospective exhibition – Part II: Recent works and war paintings

The second part of the dual anniversary exhibition in Ermelo showed more recent paintings, dating from the last 20-25 years, as well as paintings made by Viktor during the Bosnian War (1992-1995). This exhibition also showed several more “sketchy” pencil drawings, most of which Viktor created on a single day in June 1989.

Together the two exhibitions provided a fascinating overview of the many developments and distinct phases in Viktor’s long career.
