GUIDED TOUR IN ENGLISH
28 August 2020, 18:00 - 19:00
Guided tour of the extended exhibition MATTIS TEUTSCH - AVANTGARDE AND CONSTRUCTIVE REALISM by art historian Merse Pál Szeredi.
János Mattis Teutsch (1884–1960) is best known for his expressionist work from the early decades of the twentieth century. Born in Brașov, he was discovered for the Hungarian avant-garde during the First World War by Lajos Kassák, and his graphics defined the face of the Budapest magazine Ma. Kassák also arranged solo exhibitions for Mattis Teutsch. The work he produced in the first half of the 1920s established his international reputation in the Central and East European avant-garde movement and latterly became the focus of interest for art historians, who have paid somewhat less attention to his art of the period between the late 1930s up to his death. The exhibition in the Kassák Museum puts forward a new interpretation of Mattis Teutsch’s later art. The curator, Szilárd Miklós, has brought together works from museums in Romania and Hungary and from private collections as well as the family archive, concentrating on pictures that have not previously been put on public display in Hungary.
