Leopold Horovitz 1838 - 1917. Lost - Found

Sorry, but the item is sold out.

This cooperation of VSM in Košice and SNG in Bratislava at the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the death of Leopold Horovitz (1838 − 1917) brought a voluminous retrospective of this painter. The exhibition is accompanied by a Slovak-English catalogue dedicated to the life and work of this Košice native. Despite Horovitz´s undeniable qualities, this is the first ever publication focusing exclusively on this author.

Both the first and the second edition of the catalogue have already been sold out, and therefore we offer you the third, revised edition, which is at the same time the first electronic edition.

The catalogue with the current 195 pages contains a study of the life and work of L. Horovitz, his wider family bloodline, and 30 medallions dedicated to his selected works represented in the exhibition, as well as to minor thematic areas, such as the Jews in Košice or the exhibition to celebrate the 100th anniversary of his birth in Košice in 1938. Unlike the preceding ones, this edition comprises photo documentation of the exhibition and a list of the works on display, which used to be a separate supplement.

The catalogue also includes more than 20 full-page reproductions of L. Horovitz´s works from Slovak and foreign collections. The publication contains dozens of other full-colour reproductions from prestigious foreign collections, such as the Belvedere Museum, Albertina Museum, and the Austrian National Library, all in Vienna, the Uffizi Gallery Florence, the Israel Museum in Jerusalem, the National Museum and National Gallery in Budapest, the National Museum in Warsaw, the Wawel Royal Castle in Krakow, as well as other British, French, Israeli, Canadian, Hungarian, and Polish museums and private collections.

The exhibition took place in the East Slovak Museum in Košice, Slovakia on November 16, 2017 - April 04, 2018
