|With the publication of this stunningly illustrated account of the Hungarian avant-garde movement, an important missing link in early modern art can now be fully recognized. To such well-known names in the west as LAizslA³ Moholy-Nagy and Andor Weininger can now be added the contributions of Lajos KassAik, SAindor Bortnyik, BA©la Uitz, and a host of other painters whose significance has long been obscured. The nearly 200 illustrations, many in full color, together with essays by leading American and Hungarian scholars and a comprehensive bibliography and comparative chronology, make this a definitive sourcebook that opens a new chapter in twentieth-century art.|
During the early twentieth century, central and eastern Europe provided fertile ground for major artistic development... ()s. Hungarian painters, in particular, responded imaginatively and vigorously to the political and social changes leading up to and following World War I by ''standing in the tempest'' of political activism and attempting to redefine the role of art in society. Only in the past few years has it been possible once again to examine original works of art and to assess properly these painters' vital contribution.
Steven A. Mansbach is Dean and Director of the American Academy for the Humanitites at the Central European Institute in Berlin.
