Východoslovenské múzeum, Košice
Curator: Jana Švantnerová

The exhibition commemorating the 100th anniversary of the death of Leopold Horovitz was created by the East Slovak Museum in Košice in cooperaton with the Slovak National Gallery in Bratislava.

Leopold Horovitz, a Košice native, was one of the much-sought-after artists and portraitist of his time. He worked in Paris, Warsaw and later in Budapest and Vienna. He was also one of the first artists of Jewish descent in Poland who dealt with Jewish life in his genre paintings. He preserved clean and precise academic style of painting during his entire career.

The exhibition introduces more than 50 artworks from Slovak and foreign collections in the context of the wider art scene of the time - the seven rooms showcase not only the works of Leopold Horovitz but also the works of his teachers, mentors, colleagues and followers.

The exhibition is accompanied by an extensive Slovak-English catalogue mapping the life and work of Leopold Horovitz as well as his era and milieu.

The first curatorial talk will be held on 26 November 2017 at 15:00.
