A major study of avant-garde movements in Hungarian art of the late 19th and early 20th centuries and their links to modernist trends in Western Europe, this substantial catalogue provides excellent reproductions of more than 130 stylistically diverse paintings, drawings, sculptures and decorative objects by some 50 Hungarian artists (including Robert Bereny, Tivadar Csontvary Kosztka, Bela Czobel, Karoly Ferenczy, Mihaly Munkacsy, Jozsef Rippl-Ronai, Pal Szinyei Merse and Janos Vaszary) and of some 70 works by such French and German artists as Courbet, Menzel, Boudin, Manet, Leibl and Bonnard. Augmented by individual commentaries on the featured pieces, nine scholarly essays include discussions of artistic exchanges among painters in Budapest, Paris and Munich during the period, the impact on Hungarian artists of the 1869 international art exposition in Munich, the rise of modernist styles in Hungary prior to World War I, and the interests and activities of turn-of-the-century Hungarian collectors.
