Franz Liszt's Love Letter to Marie d'Agoult

"My heart overflows with emotion and joy!
I do not know what heavenly languor, what infinite pleasure permeates it and burns me up.
It is as if I had never loved!
Tell me whence these uncanny disturbances spring, these inexpressible foretastes of delight, these divine, tremors of love.
Oh! all this can only spring from you, sister, angel, woman, Marie!"

Henri Lehmann | Marie d'Agoult, 1843 | Petit Palais, Paris

Laszlo Gulyas, 1960

Born in Budapest, Hungary, Laszlo Gulyas graduated at the Academy of Fine and Applied Arts. Laszlo continued his studies as a student of the Academy of Fine Arts between 1983-1987.
He has been member of the National Society of Hungarian Artists since 1987. The artist developed his individual world of images and acquired the painting techniques of the early masters of painting under the influence of the universal art of Rembrandt.
This is what makes him distinct form his contemporaries. He seems to be charmed by the revival of heritage rather than by demolishing the art of painting or by recording its death struggle. In his works he applies the contrastive effects of the light and the shade with brilliant skills. Besides the clear colours his sketching appears to be remarkable.
The principal values of his gift are exhibited in his portrays of his family, which are full of vitality and harmony.

Mihály Munkácsy 1844-1900 | Hungarian realist painter

Mihály Munkácsy, originally Michael von Lieb, was a Hungarian painter, who lived in Paris and earned international reputation with his genre pictures and large scale biblical paintings. Munkácsy was born Michael von Lieb to German parents in Munkács, Kingdom of Hungary, the town from which he later gathered his pseudonym. After being apprenticed to itinerant painter Elek Szamossy, Munkácsy went to Pest, the capital city, where he sought the patronage of some established artists. With the help of the landscapist Antal Ligeti he received a grant from the state so he could study abroad. In 1865 he studied at the Academy of Vienna under Karl Rahl. In 1866 he went to Munich to study at the Academy, and in 1868 he moved to Düsseldorf to learn from the popular genre painter Ludwig Knaus. In 1867 he travelled to Paris to see the Universal Exposition. After this trip his style became much lighter, with broader brushstrokes and tonal colour schemes - he was probably influenced by modern French painting seen at the Exposition. In the early years of his career Munkácsy painted mainly scenes from the daily lives of peasants and poor people. First he followed the colourful, theatrical style of contemporary Hungarian genre painters (e. g. Károly Lotz, János Jankó), for example in The Cauldron (1864) or Easter Merrymaking (1865). In the next years he started to pay more attention to the landscape into which he placed his figures (Storm in the Puszta, 1867). From the Düsseldorf genre painters he learnt to represent different emotions in his figures and to treat them as a group (The Last Day of a Condemned Man, 1869).
