Although I've written about Rembrandt, to study his etchings it's not unavailing. Over 300 pieces of his etching-oeuvre are almost seems to exhaust all possibilities, from drawing like pen sketches to the well edited pictorial compositions, from the prints with clean white backgrounds to the tonal ones.

The Idea to illustrate Madách Imre's 1860 published work was came up in the summer of 1885. In this time the newspapers wrote that Zichy got a two month holiday from the czar, to draw the illustrations for The Tragedy of Man. At the first time he only drawed 15 artworks, which were exhibited in the Műcsarnok in 1886.

One year later in 1888 another gift edition were published with all the 20 drawings. The readership and the citic were also impressed. In spite of illustration were very extensive and popular from the 1850's, this was the first time that Zichy made a series for a hungarian literature.

Luigi Ficacci:
Piranesi's fantastic worlds
The great 18th century architectural artist and master engraver

Publisher: TASCHEN
Year: 2011
Content: 792 pages
Language: English, French, German

One of the greatest architectural artists of all time, and certainly the most famous copper engraver of the 18th century, Giovanni Battista Piranesi (1720-1778) is best known for his terrifyingly original series of etchings of labyrinthine and megalomaniac prisons, Carceri d'Invenzione. In his own day, he was most celebrated for his Vedute, 137 etchings of ancient and modern Rome; so renowned were these startling and dramatic chiaroscuro images, imbued with Piranesi's romantic feeling for archaeological ruins, that they formed the mental picture of Rome for generations after. Indeed, Piranesi could be said to have shaped a whole strain of contemporary architecture, as well as the wider visualization of antiquity itself. In our time, he has had a direct influence on writers such as Borges and Kafka and on filmmakers such as Terry Gilliam and Peter Greenaway.

Hincz illustrated hundreds of books from the 1940s faithfully followed Babits idea that "... the drawing is not a translator of the poet's work: it completes: Because it tells you what the poet can't."

Generations have been raised up reading these children's books (Weöres Sándor: Bóbita, Zimzizim, Radnóti Miklós: Esti mosolygás, etc) created by the visual world. Latter he said: "I ​​feel I can't start visual education early enough . Therefore, I'm gladly I can illustrate these books for childrens. "

Since some weeks I am industrious, productive and innovative. Above all I am on the track of a quite different and another type of impossible figure,. I can see it for my inner sight. It mixes up what is near and distant in an overwhelming way.. I hope that I perhaps will carry out and realize this "discovery". I have gone through series of trials and errors, but not yet achieved a "credible" result. When I will succeed, perhaps I will be able to draw an inside out Eiffel tower

The first list of symbols of techniques used in creating and printing ex-libris was adopted in 1958 at the Barcelona Congress of FISAE. However, a major revision was needed.
A revised list, given below, was adopted at the XXIX Congress, Frederikshavn DK, in August 2002.

A basic subdivision enables even relatively uninformed collectors to observe an ex-libris and determine in which of the three categories it belongs:
Intaglio - The ink is deposited from the grooves of the plate
Relief - The ink is deposited from the reliefs of the plate
Flatbed/stencil/electronic - The ink is deposited from the flat surface of the plate, through a stencil or screen, or electronically

Huba Bálványos, graphic artist, Munkácsi Prize winner, died at age 73 on 12 August 2011.

He chiefly made figurative art, mostly lithographs, graphics and drawings with mixed technique. He also made large size pictures, memorial walls for schools and bronze portrait reliefs. Thematic folders were published of his linocuts and graphics. He also made book illustrations. In Hungary he had more than 100 exhibitions, abroad 5, in addition he was a regular participant of graphic art biennials. Several pieces of his artwork were bought by public galleries, many of them can be seen in the Hungarian National Gallery (Magyar Nemzeti Galéria). For acknowlegement of his work he was awarded many prizes; for example the Munkácsy Prize in 1979, the Szent-Györgyi Albert Prize because of his pedagogy work, the Eötvös József Prize in 2008, last year he won the Csokonai Vitéz Mihály Art Prize.

"Besides his work as an artist he is also well-known for his lectures, proffessional articles and books on visual education. He was one of the founders and presidents of the College of Pedagogy and Visual Education Institutions. He found the development of opinions as the strong connection between art and pedagogy. He declared the following: '...if art wasn't for life, if it wasn't about life, what would it be for?'." (Pál Gerber, 2010)

„Tisztelet a Mesternek” sorozat keretében Bálványos Huba grafikusművész kiállítása még pár napig megtekinthető a Szőnyi István emlékmúzeumban.

„Válogatott rajzok. Rajzok papíron, rajzok kövön. A kőre rajzolt rajzok is papírra kerültek, ezek a litográfia nyomatok. A nyomatokból több is készülhetett, más rajzokból egy van. Ez a különbség az egyedi és a sokszorosító grafika között. Mikor melyik, és miért éppen az lesz a technikája, formája egy rajznak? A rajzok többnyire egymásból születnek: a válogatásban az egyfélék készülési évszáma ezért is van viszonylag közel egymáshoz.

Rajzok sokasága látható a honlapomon, fel is merülhet, hogy miért éppen ezek kerültek itt most falra? Itt nincs helye vallani erről, de talán elég annyi, hogy itt ezeket mutatom legszívesebben Szőnyi Mesternek. Volnának persze még további ilyenek, de a mennyiségi korlát miatt meg kellett küzdeni a nagyobb darabszám kísértésével. Szeretem a digitális bemutatást is, szép közelségbe tudja hozni például a rajzi részleteket. Ám az eredetiek mindig újra megmozgatnak, s ilyen, vagy ehhez hasonló hatást remélek kiváltani a nézőkből is. Az anyagi megjelenés, ami felvette a kifejezést, közvetlenül tud szólni ilyenkor.”

HORATIO
Two nights together had these gentlemen,
Marcellus and Bernardo, on their watch,
In the dead vast and middle of the night,
Been thus encounter'd. A figure like your father,
Armed at point exactly, cap-a-pe,
Appears before them, and with solemn march
Goes slow and stately by them: thrice he walk'd
By their oppress'd and fear-surprised eyes,
Within his truncheon's length; whilst they, distilled
Almost to jelly with the act of fear,
Stand dumb and speak not to him.

565 × 445 mm


"Two Masters of Fantasy: Bresdin and Redon" features the prints and drawings of two artists who explored worlds of the imagination, the inner reality of the subconscious, and of dream. The eccentric French printmaker and draftsman Rodolphe Bresdin (1822-1885) created a miniature world dominated by the overwhelmingly intricate web of nature. He was the teacher of Odilon Redon (1840-1916), who was master of blackness in his lithographs and drawings (noirs). Two major drawings (one newly acquired) and a selection of lithographs explore his invented mythologies. The exhibition consists of 40 works drawn primarily from the Museum's collection with a few loans from private collectors.

George Grosz (1893 – 1959) german artist. Near the Academy, he studied caricatures. The difficulties of living were forced to draw into : his humorous, satyric drawings were very popular. His compositions were mainly like graphics than paintings.

He hated cruelity, and he was dreaming of mankind happiness. May be that was the reason he can illustrate with cruel. Grosz's satyre reveal the dark side of the society. His artworks and drawings were confiscated, banned, qualify against morality.

This exhibition presents a selection of works on paper – drawings, prints and photographs – acquired by the Museo del Prado between 1997 and 2010. It offers visitors the first opportunity to admire the most important works acquired over this period and which are normally stored in the Department of Prints and Drawings due to their fragile nature. In addition, the exhibition sets out the Museum’s principal strategies with regard to the acquisition of works on paper.

The Museum’s Department of Prints and Drawings, located in the new Jerónimos Building designed by Rafael Moneo, houses the collection of drawings, prints and old photographs that has been built up since the time of the Museum’s founding. Together with the original works from the royal collection, a number of additional groups were added such as those from the Museo de la Trinidad and the Museo de Arte Moderno. Together they constituted the core of this area of the Prado’s collection, which has been expanded over the years, particularly with the addition of the Pedro Fernández Durán Bequest in 1931. It has continued to grow over the years through significant acquisitions, particularly in the period from 1997 to 2010.

For the first time in the Museum’s history the catalogue has only been published in on-line format can download here.

Experimenting

Tuesday, August 09, 2011 rezkarcfitness 0 Comments

If we have got some free time and a useless cooper plate, we can make some experiment. The best effects has happened when I did another way (left the plate in the acid, thin hard ground, different Iron chloride koncentrate...) many strange and surprising effects. Who has the same experience, or may be explored something interesting please write as a comment.

Isoda Koryusai (1735-1790) was a Japanese printmaker and painter active from approximately 1764 to 1788.
The details of his life are under some dispute. He apparently came from a samurai background. One theory stated he became a ronin and was forced to turn to art, but another says he voluntarily gave up the life of a samurai for art. In 1781 he received the title Hokkyo for his talent and accomplishments.

Semmelweis Ignác, 1982
etching
355 × 250 mm

A Semmelweis Ignác egykori szülőházában működő Semmelweis Orvostörténeti Múzeum az orvostudomány és gyógyszerészet hazai és nemzetközi történetéből ad ízelítőt. Az állandó kiállítás az ókortól a 20. század elejéig tartó fejlődés tárgyi, művészeti és írásos emlékeit mutatja be, míg az időszaki kiállítások egy-egy különös téma köré csoportosítják olykor meghökkentő, más múzeumokban ritkán látható anyagukat.


A látogató nem csak ismeretekben, hanem élményekben is gazdagodhat ebben a sajátos légkörű múzeumban: beléphet Semmelweis egykori dolgozószobájába, vagy a kétszáz éves, pesti Szent Lélek patika faragott bútorai közé, gyönyörködhet a művészi kivitelű, 18. századi anatómiai viaszpreparátumokban, a miniatűr fogászati rendelőmodellben és a furcsa, ódon orvosi műszerekben egyaránt.

A Múzeum Gyűjteményében orvosokról, kutatókról, eszközökről készült rézkarcok, rézmetszetek is megtalálhatóak.

Giovanni Domenico Tiepolo (1727 – 1804) was a Venetian painter and printmaker in etching. His father was Giovanni Battista Tiepolo, also an italian great painter. He studied under his father, at the age of 20 he was producing his own work for commissioners. Often reproducing his own or his father's paintings. However we've known about two original series, the 20 illustrations of the Flight into Egypt ( 1753 ), and the other is the 14 Stations of the Cross.
