Szalay 110 - The argentinian period

Miskolci Galéria Városi Művészeti Múzeum

Date: 22/June/2019 - 28/September/2019

A large-scale exhibition of the graphics by Lajos Szalay in the occasion of the artist's 110th birthday.

There was a reason why Pablo Picasso, perhaps the most controversial figure of 20th-century art, called him “the next greatest graphic artist in the world”—second, that is, only to himself. To this day, art historians in Argentina, where Szalay taught for over a decade, are likely to distinguish “pre-Szalay” and “post-Szalay” periods: such was the influence of his work on the young graphic artists of the country.
