Item Sold

Description

Georg Mayer-Marton - Original 1941 Charcoal Drawing. Drawn on thin wove paper. Executed in an expressionist style reminiscent of Egon Schiele. Monogrammed and Dated. On wove. Condition is typical for a picture of this age including some discolouration.

Hungarian-born Georg Mayer-Marton (1897-1960) studied at the Academies of Vienna and Munich, becoming Secretary and then Vice President of the progressive society of artists, the Hagenbund. His life took a turn in 1938 when he fled to England with his wife with the advent of the Nazis and the enactment of Hitler’s race. In 1940, during the London Blitz, his studio home in St John’s Wood was burnt by an incendiary bomb. Most of his life’s work and his personal possessions were destroyed. After over a decade of traveling and lecturing with the Arts Council Mayer-Marton took up a permanent position as senior lecturer at the College of Art in Liverpool. “The course in this technique which he instigated at the College was the first of its kind in the U.K, His civilizing influence and breadth of vision, underpinned by a deep understanding of Art History, combined with the technical skill of the practising artist, are remembered with gratitude by former students.” http://www.mayer-marton.com/
