ABA-NOVAK self-portrait masterpiece - An art house couple

Exhibition of paintings, graphics and woven fabrics

Red (Eisler) Rozalia (1919-1992) and Ferenc Redő (1913-2012) painter couple. Their masters were Vilmos Aba Novák, Róbert Berény and Béla Iványi Grünwald. Though their social situation would have allowed them, they could not start their life in an artistic career, because the II. World War II prevented it. After the war, they took on the role of cultural public life and only gradually returned to their original vocation. Red Rosalia in 1954, Ferenc Redő was replaced in 1960 and continued his artistic career. In the free school, Rozália Red is for painting the board painting, Ferenc Redő also prepared for graphic tasks, drawing and linoleum cutting. In their newly organized work, Rozalia Red found the pastel as a form of expression that could quickly and freely capture the impressions of the outdoors, even in studio conditions, and was also welcomed by the audience. He continued to work with oil, and then reached the tapestry by expanding the batik's expression potential.
In 1960 they made their first tapestry and the new genre captured both of them. Red Rosalia has learned to weave, and Red has woolly paint, and has created the opportunity for continuous work for themselves in this demanding and expensive genre. The last thirty or fifty years of their lives were mostly filled with gobelin design. They also visited the genre-bound areas, the dormitories or the "gros point" genre. They visited Italy several times, and the atmosphere of Rozalia was particularly fond of it. They took part in collections and exhibitions at home and abroad (Dubna, Helsinki, Paris). Their harmonious co-operation, respecting each other's independence, ended with the death of Red Rosalia. The last twenty years were difficult for his creator, but his art, and his work-watching environment, kept him alive. His regular disciples, friends and admirers regularly visited his exhibitions organized in his apartment. He became a SZOT-winner, a worthy and excellent artist, and the capital of XIII. the district was awarded with ornamental citizenship.

oil on canvas 95x70 cm, 1923) c. his painting is presented.
At the beginning of Vilmos Aba-Novák's (1894–1941) career, he made a number of self-portraits, made in the form of pencil drawings, ink and etchings, with self-analyzing facial graphics. At the same time, he often used himself as a model on his oil paintings. Apart from this self-development study, there were also financial reasons. It was the cheapest model for you…
The self-portrait exhibited here shows the mature creator, possessing all his picturesque skills. The half-shape setting has a cool, cheerful shape with painterly clear cubist features, superior light and shadow treatment. - writes Kováts Kristóf, Aba Novák's grandson, caretaker of his estate.
