Located at 11 Lado Gudiashvili, the exhibition hall is dedicated to the memory of one of the progenitors of Georgian modern art.
This elegant, three-story house is the property of the artist’s family, and, on their wishes, part of it was turned into an exhibition hall where Gudiashvili’s portraits are displayed.
Lado Gudiashvili was especially famous for his wall paintings. One of his most famous examples of monumental painting can be seen quite close to the exhibition hall, as he painted the altar at Kashveti Church.
Gudiashvili studied in Paris from 1921 to 1925 and became friends with such luminaries as Amedeo Modigliani, Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, and Maurice Utrillo.
Some of Gudiashvili’s works can be found at the Dresden Art Gallery, galleries in Paris, the Prado Museum in Madrid, and in many private collections around the world.
