Endre Rozsda was a Hungarian-French painter and photographer, but he is best known for his post-impressionist and surrealist paintings. The exhibition at the Hungarian National Gallery, entitled „Embraced by Time”, is commemorating the centenary of the artist's birth. It was created in collaboration with the Society of Friends of Endre Rozsda, based in Paris, and the French Institute of Budapest. Almost 100 paintings, graphics, and photographs from different eras and styles are displayed in a chronological order, ranging from naturalism to abstract.
Endre Rozsda started drawing at the age of five and began to paint and taking photos in his early teens. He was in his early twenties when the first successful exhibition of his works was held.
In 1938 he settled in Paris, met artists like Picasso and da Silva, and discovered surrealism. In the paintings and graphics of Rozsda we can sense an artist capable of expressing everything through lines and colours. His every movement, whether drawn with pencil or brush, is loaded with a subtle meaning. The exhibition can be viewed at the Hungarian National Gallery until 2 March 2014. Entrance tickets costs 1400 HUF.
