Presenting more than 150 paintings, drawings and prints (many from Hungarian collections long inaccessible to the West), this informative catalogue offers the first full-scale examination of the significant role of Hungarian painters in advancing Modernist artistic and social issues prior to the country's isolation from Western Europe following World War I. Five substantial essays by American and Hungarian scholars discuss the political, cultural and artistic contexts of the avant-garde movement in Hungary and its close links to and influence on developments in other Central European countries and in Russia.
