ISTVÁN FARKAS EXHIBITION
Hungarian Modernist

A rare opportunity to see this extraordinary group of 50 paintings, water-colors and drawings by István Farkas (1887-1944).

"Between the two world wars, István Farkas created a remarkable body of work which today is largely unknown. Much of the acclaim he received from 1926 through 1932 as a prominent figure in the École de Paris was forgotten after his departure from that city, and upon his return to Budapest, he did not participate in contemporaneous groups or movements. Compelled to assume responsibility for his family's publishing company, he had limited time for making art. Nonetheless, Farkas forged a deeply personal and symbolic visual language during this difficult and ultimately tragic period."
