Lot Notes

Paul Neagu made a crucial contribution to the development of conceptual art in both Romania and Britain. His complex body of work revolves around his philosophy, according to which everything that exists is simultaneously distinct and interconnected. Neagu was a significant name of the 1960s Romanian neo-avantgarde. After settling in London in the 1970s, Paul Neagu worked as an artist and teacher. His art had a great impact on those who later became Britain’s leading sculptors of the 80s and 90s, including Tony Cragg, Antony Gormley, Anish Kapoor. Neagu’s works have been exhibited at Tate Britain, Victoria and Albert Museum, The Henry Moore Foundation, The Scottish National Gallery (United Kingdom), the Philadelphia Museum of Art, (U.S.A), Fukuoka Museum (Japan), The National Museum of Art (Romania).
