Haroutiun Galentz

1910-1967 | Kyurin, Armenia

Haroutiun Galentz was a prolific Armenian painter. He was awarded the Medal of Merit by the presidium of International Exhibitions in New York in 1939, and the honorary prize by the government of Lebanon for his bas-reliefs in the Pavilion of Lebanon presented at the New York International exhibition. His landscapes and still lifes are imbued with light. According to Henrik Igityan, “looking at the radiant, cheerful paintings of Galents, remembering his kind uistful eyes, one finds it impossible to realize that this quiet sad man is the author of those bright optimistic poetic tales”.
