Proposal for a Green Plaque to commemorate artist Halima Nalecz and the Drian Galleries


Summary of Decision


That the nomination for a commemorative Green Plaque to Halima Na??cz at 5 Porchester Place, W2 2PE be approved.


Reasons for decision


Halima Na??cz was regarded as eminent in her day and remains respected as a gallery owner today. Many distinguished artists were loyal to the gallery throughout their careers and The Drian Galleries archives are in the Tate Gallery. The Drian deserves recognition for its role in promoting and supporting avant-garde art of the 1950s and 60s and Halima Na??cz deserves the same for her role as a patron of the arts, especially in and for Poland. She nurtured careers and donated works of art to Polish national museums.


The application is supported by an independent Green Plaque panel and Gill Hedley, independent curator and a consultant on contemporary visual arts.
