The show, set to go on public display on Oct. 4 at the cultural center’s art gallery, will mark the 100th anniversary of the birth of the prolific and versatile artist, who was a native of Kadıköy.
The show will bring together a selection from the private collection owned by the Eyüboğlu family as well as personal belongings of the late artist, who died of cancer in 1975 at the age of 62. Among the items to be showcased in the 90-piece exhibition are his desk, typewriter, paint brushes as well as his ceramics and world famous oils on canvas, the Anatolia news agency reported on Wednesday. Twenty-five canvases by Eyüboğlu that have never been exhibited before will also be featured, as well as his incomplete last work, “Mor Han” (The Purple Inn), Anatolia said.
The Bedri Rahmi Eyüboğlu 100th Anniversary exhibition will run through Nov. 4.
