Attila Richard Lukacs - From The Salah J. Bachir Collection
Attila Richard Lukacs from the collection of Salah J. Bachir
Attila Richard Lukacs (b.1962) was catapulted to international fame in the early 1990s for his monumental, sexually charged canvases drawing on the traditions of European history painting. His large-scale paintings and, in particular, his provocative treatment of the male nude added an element of notoriety to his critically-designated status as a contemporary master of figurative art. More recently, Lukacs has exhibited an extraordinary series of Polaroid photographic studies of the numerous studio models that have informed these very works. Salah J. Bachir is Lukacs's primary collector. This major publication lushly illustrates Bachir's entire collection of Lukacs pieces, including many of the artist's most well-known paintings, Polaroids and collages created over the last three decades.
