|Gallery Festival Art Collectors’ Night on Budapest|
BUDAPEST “It is a social event, a miniature festival, an opportunity to meet new directions of fine arts, paying respect to the grandmasters; uniting for a good cause!”
This was the invitation by a friend of mine to the festival which he already invites for the thirteenth time.
The program, which is being held in every quarter of a year, takes place in the gallery square of Budapest: at Falk Miksa street. On the pretext of the program numerous galleries have opened their gates simultaneously.
The gallery of Sonja Pintér awaited the visitors with an exhibition of Gyula Konkoly’s pictures. The artist is a leading figure of contemporary Hungarian painting whose works of art are inspired by his own life experience.
The Gallery Kieselbach gave has exhibited a collection of paintings from the nineteenth and twentieth century as well as one of the antique materials of the legendary Bedő.

The exhibition Memory Sent In Motion at gallery Körmendy has showcased the work of Attila Adorján in a four story tenement. The artist is the inheritor of the hyperrealist legacy who has started his studies at László Gyémánt’s school in Óbuda.
The invocation of painting tradition, resembling the manner of photorealism, is apathetic and automated. Similar to superrealists, the focus is sharp and the background is photographically inanimate. His creations drift freely between the realist legacy of fine art’s history and summon everyone easily from Caravaggio through the American hyperrealists to the classicizing templar frescos.
Gallery Haas’s exhibition series titled Modern Classics – Classical Contemporaries has arrived to its fifth destination on the Art Collector’s Night. The gallery has selected from the works of artists active in the first half of the twentieth century who have painted in modernistic mentality; their pictures would rightly woke up the interest of any collector and guest. Here one could enjoy the work of Vilmos Aba-Novák, Ernő Bánk, Ődőn Márffy and others.
Tivadar Kosztka Csontváry
The best music was also played in front of this gallery: the list of musicians has included Blues artist Ernő Fekete and the band Mookie Brando and the Second Cousins who have played a fusion of Country, Folk, Blues and Jazz in their own composition brilliantly.
Surprising was the Imre Makláry Art Gallery, for it has awaited the public with a collection exhibition with the title New Compositions. Masterpiecs by Tibor Csernus, Endre Rozsda, István Beöthy, István Sándorfi were on displayed on the walls of the gallery.
Tibor Csernus said in a portray film that if you’d like your pictures to be loved and admired, then your guide must be your instincts instead of your reason.
His graphics and sketches were largely intoned during the gallery. “He was the last magician of the realist painters!” claimed István Arató, a painter who has lived next to the gallery for years.
Endre Rozsda, another defining figure of twentieth century fine arts, is a nationally acknowledged Hungarian representative of abstract surrealism. He lived in Paris, where he was massively influenced by surrealism, and was a funding member of the progressive Hungarian European school. Later his manner of expression has become nonfigurative. In 1957 he had permanently emigrated in Paris and worked in the following styles: painting, graphics and photography.
The Prestige gallery was opened by the Picture Hall on the Art Collector’s Night. Its aim is to provide the audience with lasting values by presenting the work of internationally popular contemporary Hungarian artists.
“Did you know that, according to Van Gogh, paintings directly evoke feelings and emotions from the viewer?” asked from me a famous banker, who is a long time art collector and lived in the Miksa Falk Street till the end of the last century.
“Maybe you’re right!” I answered. “Because I’ve seen heroes, saints, kings, chaotic rules, fate, mourn, loneliness, secrets, nightmares and desire!”
