BOLDIZSÁR, István (1897, Orasháya, Békés, Dél-Alföld, Ungaria - 1984, Budapesta, Pest, Közép-Magyarország, Ungaria)
Artistic education: Academy of Fine Arts, Budapest (1919), studies with RÉTI István; The Baia Mare painting colony (participates in 5 creative colonies, between 1918 - 1922), becomes one of the favorites of the master THORMA János. After the war, he studied for a few months in Kekskemét with Béla IVÁNY GRÜNWALD. Between 1920 and 1923 he spent several winters in Munich where he became acquainted with the engraving technique, helped by Sándor KUBINYI, a student of Simon HOLLÓSY.
The artist participated in 5 group exhibitions of the colony (1918-1922) and organized personal exhibitions in Baia Mare, Satu Mare, Arad (1930). In Baia Mare he adopts the principles of plein air painting, inspired by nature, in the manner of late post-impressionism, to which he will remain faithful throughout his life. His participation in the exhibitions of the Baia Mare colony illustrates a unique moment in the history of the colony, that of the appearance of engravers in the Baia Mare environment, the art of engraving being a priority in the material exhibited by Boldizsár, along with Eugen PASCU, FERENCZY Váler, KÁROLY Pátkó.
