We report a multilens X-ray interferometer consisting of six parallel arrays of planar compound refractive lenses. The main concept of new interferometer is based on the same principle such a bilens interferometer. The interference fringe pattern produced by the multilens interferometer was described by Talbot imaging formalism. A theoretical analysis of the interference pattern formation was carried out and corresponding computer simulations were performed. The proposed multilens interferometer was experimentally tested at ID06 ESRF beamline in the X-ray energy range from 10 to 30 keV. Experimentally recorded fractional Talbot images are in a good agreement with computer calculations.
