Abandoned world. The Art of Istvan Farkas

Istvan Farkas, one of Hungary’s leading modernist artists, left behind a unique “creativity” that defies stylistic categories.

The art and personality of Istvan Farkas captured the imagination of French critics, such as the poet Andre Salmon, who wrote a monograph about him in 1930

After the death of his father in 1932, Farkas returned to Budapest, where, keeping up with his Parisian contemporaries, he continued to create his own symbolic visual language. In 1944, he was deported due to his Jewish descent and was killed on arrival at Auschwitz.

This monographicExhibitionpays tribute to the memory of this great artist on the 75th anniversary of his death.
