Painting & Drawing
The de Laszlo Archive Trust was set up to research, catalogue and administer the paintings and archive of Philip Alexius de László. This is the first time an authoritative assessment of Philip de László’s output has been made available online. The Catalogue Raisonné of Works by de László. Late in his career, de László stated that he had painted some 2,700 portraits. It is however now estimated that in his 50-year working life he in fact produced more than 5,000 works in oil, of which the majority are portraits, some of these being preparatory oil sketches. Most of his work is still in private collections.
Árpád Forgó is a Hungarian painter working in Budapest. Nature and natural phenomena has always inspired him the most, though - as he was grown up in the Middle East - meeting decorative and ornament arts had an inevitable effect on his visual approach. Mainly he works in a traditional genre, oil on canvas, but finding his own ways within. Among other materials he mainly uses oil paint, not as a classic painting substance but as a flexibly variable material: creating paint-welts and laying them on canvas is the pragmatic part in the creative process, by which he can develop a personal set-up of the surface of the painting that compels for tactile communication between the viewer and the work on top of the visual perception. Treating a painting as an object, emphasizing the paint's corporeal manifestation he can perambulate the possible relations of structure, shape, measures, planar and spatial proportions.
