Kimon Loghi(b. 1873 in Serres, The Ottoman Empire – d. 1952 in Bucharest, Romania) was a Macedonian-Romanian painter. Loghi was highly active on the Romanian art scene of the late 19th century, by both exhibiting works and engaging in the artistic debates of the time. A student of Theodor Aman in Bucharest, Loghi began to develop his own distinctive style in Munich, where he continued his studies under the highly acclaimed Greek painter Nikolaos Gyzis and German artist Franz Stuck, known for the mythological motifs of his works. 

Loghi’s paintings adopt the lyricism and decadent sensibility of the Munich School to produce an eerie and unique universe that evokes the cultural forms of Romanian folkloric motifs. While the soft colours of his landscapes construct utopian narratives of natural beauty, in metaphors of both hope and nostalgia, his portraiture is diaphanous, mysterious, and delicate. Two of his most notable works, Orientala and The Flower in The Hair, synthesise the duality of light and darkness to create intricate depictions of the female characters, as the textures and colours of their dress seem to conceal cryptic messages of emotional significance to the artist. 

Kimon Loghi’s works are part of both public and private collections, in Romania and abroad, including The National Museum of Art of Romania, The Peles National Museum, The Art Museum of Constanta, and Cotroceni National Museum.
