About The Artist:

Born in 1894, Istv‡án Szöšnyi was one of the most prominent Hungarian painters of the 20th century and a gifted member of the Nagybánya group of artists. Similar to the contemporaneous work of the German Brücke and Blaue Reiter groups, Szönyi's paintings typically employ a bold palette and slightly abstracted forms, as evidenced in one of his most well-known works, "The Bend in the Danube", as well as the above work depicting an interior scene.
