The work of Lajos Szalay (1909–1995), an outstanding artist in the field of Hungarian drawing, and Koloman Sokol (1902–2003), an enigmatic figure of Slovak graphic art, hailed from the same geographical and intellectual environment. The life stories of Szalay and Szokol have some striking parallels. They spent the majority of their lives on the American continent, created the backbone of their work in the United States, while preserving and cherishing their Central European identities. Opening on 21 January 2016, the Szalay – Sokol – Picasso exhibition at the Pálffy Palace in Bratislava is the result of a cooperation between the Kovács Gábor Art Foundation (KOGART) and the the Bratislava City Gallery (BCG).
