Catalogue Note

Painted circa 1924-25, the present work is a rare view of the city of Budapest by János Vaszary. Looking out north-east towards Buda Castle, the view encompasses the dome of the Parliament building in the upper right, the Széchenyi (Chain) Bridge, and buildings of one of the oldest parts of Buda known as the Tabán, a bohemian area of the city at the time. With its quick brushstrokes and thick blotches of colour, the present work echoes similar views of Montmartre by nineteenth century French artists.
