What makes a painter work for years on a painting that he can’t even see in a whole because it’s a lot bigger than the available surface? Maybe the drive is something human, all too human. Titled after Nietzsche, the works of Tibor Duray will be on display within the frameworks of an exhibition at Vaszary Gallery starting from August 20. The two sections of the exhibition display the art of Duray, who was a painter, graphic, sculptor, and medalist as well, starting from the glorious beginnings in the ‘30s, until the ‘80s.
The first part of the exhibition is focused on the golden age and the war. Duray’s Golden Age is a unique phenomenon of Hungary’s art history in the 20th century – he worked on the sizeable piece (2x10 meters, oil, canvas) for more than a decade.
The second half of the exhibition displays the ink drawings that are outstanding parts of his work, including tiny landscapes and stage plans.
