New exhibition in Tihany

Csernus Tibor: Sartre: Dirty Hands – illustration (1979)

It is the first time that a comprehensive overview of Tibor Csernus's book illustrations is presented. The exhibits are part of the contents of his Paris studio and can be seen from 1 November, 2013 in KOGART Exhibitions Tihany. We concentrate on the Paris years, when he produced cover designs and illustrations for a wide range of themes, from belles-lettres through crime fiction and fantasy to sci-fi.

This kind of applied graphics earned him more than a livelihood: the years of cooperation with such prestigious publishers as the famous Gallimard also brought him professional recognition.  What lends the material presented in Tihany now a particular interest and value is that in addition to the small oil or ink paintings and prints that bear testimony to Csernus’s vivid imagination and visionary powers, those experiments and discoveries are also on view that were to fuel the development of his distinct figurative style.
