About Aba Novák Vilmos
« on: February 05, 2017, 03:11:13 AM »
born March 15, 1894, Budapest, Hung.
 
died Sept. 29, 1941, Budapest

painter and printmaker who was one of the most original and controversial talents in modern Hungarian painting.

From 1912 to 1914, Aba Novák studied at the College of Fine Arts in Budapest. He then worked at the artists' colonies in Szolnok and in Nagybánya (now Baia Mare, Rom.). From 1928 to 1930 he was a fellow at the Hungarian Academy of Rome, and from 1939 he taught at the College of Fine Arts in Budapest.

His style combined elements of Expressionism with those of the Italian Novecento. His dynamic compositions and use of strong colour conveyed a sense of the fantastic; the worlds of the village fair and the circus were favourite themes. Aba Novák received numerous commissions for frescoes from the Hungarian government and from churches throughout Hungary (notably the frescoes in the Roman Catholic church in Jászszentandrás, on the Heroes' Gate in Szeged, and in St. Stephen's Mausoleum in Székesfehérvár). He won the jury's Grand Prize at the Paris World Exhibition in 1937 and that of the Venice Biennale in 1940. His paintings are held in the Hungarian National Gallery and in other public collections, as well as in several private collections.
Romans 10:9-10
"If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved."
