The face of Uzhgorod and its inhabitants in Erdelyi's cartoons were presented in the art museum (PHOTOS)
The newly released album "Adalbert Erdelyi. Cartoons" was presented today in Uzhgorod in the Transcarpathian Regional Y.Bokshay Art Museum.
As noted by art historian Mykhailo Syrokhman, it is one of the facets of the history of Uzhgorod, its faces, as the prominent Transcarpathian artist saw them.
The book was published by Oleksandra Harkusha Publishing House, and Mrs. Oleksandra today, at the celebration, noted that cartoons have a great power and a long and interesting history, and Ukrainian cartoonists regularly win the highest awards at international contests.
The Deputy Director of the Department of Culture of the Transcarpathian Regional State Administration Ildiko Molnar emphasized that cartoon drawing are one of the lesser known facets of Erdelyi's oeuvre, and the rector of the Transcarpathian Art Institute Ivan Nebesnyk noted that the works of this outstanding Transcarpathian artist are underresearched and underestimated.
Speakers at the presentation mentioned the activities of Adalbert Erdelyi, in particular the fact that the Transcarpathian artist, when he was living in Munich in the mid-1920s, was invited to draw cartoons for the largest newspaper in Germany. And he was the author of a cartoon of Hitler, convicted in 1924 for treason.
