Catalogue Note

Jozsef Lukacs was a prominent Hungarian financier, collector and patron of the arts, who lived in Budapest at the turn of the century. He and his family were friends and supporters of the Hungarian artists association The Group of Eight. Lukacs' son had written the passionate manifesto 'The Roads divided'  in defence of the 1909 art exhibition of The Group of Eight, and his daughter Mici was a close friend of Deszö Czigány. Lukacs' collection included works by fellow Hungarians Robert Bereny, Jozsef Nemes Lamperth, Karoly Ferenczy, Jozsef Rippl-Ronai, and Karoly Kernstok. After Lukacs' death, his widow donated his seminal painting Lonely Rider by Kernstok to the National Gallery, Budapest.
