About

Painting is signed by the artist. Béla Czóbel was born in Budapest, Hungary where his artistic pursuits began. He eventually moved to Paris and was immersed in the Fauve art movement. He exhibited in the important Fauve salon of 1905 alongside artists such as Henri Matisse and Andre Derain. In 1909, he was one of the founding members of The Eight, a group of avant-garde Hungarian artists instrumental in rise of modern culture in Hungary. Recent significance has been accorded to this group, with major exhibitions held in 2011 and 2012 in Hungary and Austria, along with a featured 2013-2014 exhibition at the Musée d'Orsay in Paris that focused on Béla Bartók and Hungarian Modernity. In 1918-1926, Czóbel lived and worked in Berlin and exhibited with the German Expressionist artists. From 1926 until his death in 1976, Czóbel spent his winters, painting in Paris (Montparnasse) and his summers in an art colony of Szentendre on the Danube, not too far from Budapest, Hungary.
