(9in x 11 1/4in image, 18 1/2in x 20 1/2in frame) Born--Budapest, Hungary, 1877, died 1956. Bela Kadar was an Expressionist artist, born in Hungary who created powerful images based on Hungarian culture and legends. 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. Kadar managed to mold and merge these techniques into a playful style of his own.
