1924 – 1997
EDMA (a pseudonym, composed of the first two letters of the artist’s maiden name and first name in Hungarian sequence) was the winner of the most prestigious Hungarian National Award for visual arts – the Munkácsy Prize (1955) and a graduate of the National Academy of Fine Art in Budapest.
She died suddenly in 1997 in Italy leaving behind her a great legacy - a uniquely personal vision of her contemporaries captured in paintings, sculptures and ceramics – many of which were unpublished and unseen by the public especially in the U.K.
Her wit and truthfulness often reveal human vanity and fallibility but with a smile.
“There is beauty in everything – even in what is ugly”.
We offer an exhibition of some of this unseen, vigorous work.
