This art book is the first catalogue published in English of 19th- and 20th-century Hungarian paintings, drawings and prints by the leading Hungarian artists of that period. As the history of Hungarian art unfolds, the revolutionary cultural and political history of the country itself is opened to the viewer. Nicholas Salgo, the leading American collector whose appreciation of the arts of his native land has been with him since childhood, began seriously to acquire works of Hungarian painters during his tenure as Ambassador of the United States in Budapest.
