Archive for the ‘Hungarian Secession Pictures’ Category

We paid a visit at the all new Budapest’s Secession Museum, hosted in three floors (underground, ground and first, respectively) in the former apartments house named Bedohaz in the fifth District (Honved utca, 3, project by the famous hungarian architect Emil Vidor).

The most of the pieces located there were forniture, but the museum had some very nice paintings and sculpture as well. OF course, all very Art Nouveau.

Really this post is not at all about the most famous sculpture of the hungarian artist Miklos Ligeti, the Anonymus statue at Varosligeti park. This is only the very first post of a new category I decided to name “Separated at birth”.

In those articles I’d like to show the similarities, either by artistic, subject or technical point of view, between two or more masterpieces, at least one of them hungarian by origin. In this article I’d like to let you notice the similarities, somewhat surprising, between a sculpture by Ligeti Miklos stored in the Hungarian National Museum, and another sculpture, by anonymous artist, I saw last saturday at the Art Verona fair.

On the left side you can see the original Ligeti masterpiece; on the other side the anonymous  one. Below the Ligeti’s sculpture by another perspective:

 Ok, ok, maybe not so exciting as a comparison: You could expect something more, but this was only to introduce this category ;)
