Artist:Kádár Béla (Hungarian, 1877-1956)

Size: L: 58 cm [22.8 inch], H: 66 cm [26 inch] - Including Frame [87*78 cm]

Details and Condition:: Pastel on paper on cardboard depicting a group of men and horses painted in 1912 by Hungarian painter Kádar Béla. Bela Kadar was born into a working-class Jewish family and, due to his fathers early death, was apprenticed as an iron-turner after completing only six years in primary school. He eventually began his career as an artist by painting murals in Budapest. Like many of the artists of his day he was drawn to Paris and Berlin, and by 1910 he had visited both cities twice. In 1923, Kadar showed his paintings in Berlin at the invitation of Herwath Walden. Walden was an important figure in the German avant-garde, being the publisher of the journal Der Sturm which featured the works of Franz Marc, Paul Klee, Wassily Kandinsky, Marc Chagall and Oskar Kokoschka.Prior to World War II, Kadar created bright and whimsical paintings in gouache, oil and watercolor depicting Eastern European life and heritage. Cheerful landscapes and images of Magyar (Hungarian) culture and peasant fables are sprinkled throughout his oeuvre. Though his artwork is Expressionist by nature, Kadar experimented with and employed a number of techniques from Futurism to Cubism as well as Constructivism and Neo-Primitivism.
