Balogh Family Collection Features Adolf Schreyer Landscapes and Hungarian Fine ArtFeb 10, 2022 12:00 EST
Associated with German Romanticism, painter Adolf Schreyer first got a taste of travel during the Crimean War. Schreyer followed the Austrian army while working as an artist and reporter. The geography and culture of Egypt and Syria entranced him. He learned local dialects and made a career of painting action-filled scenes from the region. Willow Auction House’s upcoming sale of the Balogh Family Fine Art Collection features several key works by Adolf Schreyer. Among them is an image of riders on horseback approaching a water source, a signature piece. Like other German Romanticists from the Düsseldorf School, Schreyer used a subdued palette to capture his far-flung scenes. Golden light pervades the available work, accented by shades of purple and mustard on the riders’ clothing.
A portion of this catalog particularly honors Hungarian artists. Collectors Steve and Pauline Balogh deliberately sought works by Mihály Munkácsy, Mária Szánthó, Laszlo Neogrady, and others to honor their family history. Available from Munkácsy is a dark painting showing an interior scene where a group of women is in the middle of a game. One looks remorseful while other players stare at the game in concentration. A semi-nude portrait by Szánthó is available alongside rose-hued winter landscapes by Neogrady. Visit LiveAuctioneers for the complete catalog and to register to bid.
