Art and Heritage in Central Europe
The Hungarian National Gallery’s new cabinet exhibition showcases the art of one of the preeminent masters of Hungarian graphic art, Gyula Tichy. The eighty or so works, including graphic works and paintings selected from the museum’s collection, contain pieces that can rarely be seen by the public or are exhibited for the first time.
During his rather short life, Tichy, a painter and graphic artist, created one of the most special oeuvres of the early twentieth century. His painting, drawing, and graphic art were inspired by the masters of English and Viennese Secession, such as Aubrey Beardsley, Walter Crane, and Gustav Klimt. His works, distinguished by delicate draughtsmanship and a decorative rendition of the themes of symbolism, were soon met with success in his day. The museum’s collection was enriched significantly, with some fifty drawings, thanks to a generous donation in 2020, which furnishes the occasion for the thus far most comprehensive exhibition of Tichy’s unique oeuvre.
The exhibition in the Graphic cabinet is available from 25 November 2022 to 5 March 2023.
