Miklós Németh, Painter of the Vulcano

Miklos Németh (1934-2012) – whose teacher was Ödön Marffy (one of the 8 “Hungarian “Wild”) – is amongst the most important hungarian painters  in our times. His specific style which resembles very much to different “western” painters like Picasso, Nolde, Kokoschka, Matisse But Németh never copied any of those great painters. He was painting based on his own and deepest emotions; his paintings were made like an eruption of a Vulcano, why he named himself as “painter both the volcano”. He never really planned to create a picture, he was just painting and when a picture was done, IT WAS DONE, he would never change it again, rather he would do another one.

I wanted to show some of his work to my community, because more and more collectors start to see the immense power of his pictures and the effect they have on themselves.  When I saw his pictures the first time, I was fascinated.

Attached you see a very early work, done in 1955 and some of his work created in the 1980ies or 1990ies.
