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
Marie Catherine Sophie, Comtesse d'Agoult (née de Flavigny; 31 December 1805 – 5 March 1876), was a Franco-German romantic author and historian, known also by her pen name, Daniel Stern.

Mihály Munkácsy (1844-1900)

Mihály Munkácsy (Mukačevo, 20 febbraio 1844 – Endenich, 1º maggio 1900) è stato un pittore Ungherese.
Mihály Lieb, suo vero nome, fu un pittore accademico, attivo a Parigi e a Budapest negli anni fra il 1870 e il 1890. Studiò nel 1863 a Budapest e nel 1864 a Vienna.
Espose al Salon di Parigi nel 1870 ottenendo un successo inaspettato. In una trentina d'anni riuscì a produrre circa seicento quadri nei generi più disparati: ritratti, nature morte, paesaggi, scene di genere, interni borghesi, composizioni storiche e religiose.
Alcuni di essi sono di dimensioni assai grandi (100 m² per l'Apoteosi del Rinascimento, oggi al Museo di Belle arti di Vienna, più di 60 m² e un centinaio di personaggi per La conquista del Paese, oggi nella sede del Parlamento Ungherese).
Purtroppo la maggior parte delle sue opere si è deteriorata per l'impiego di un fondo di colore al bitume, la cui ossidazione ha cominciato ad annerirle gravemente subito dopo la loro realizzazione.

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.
