Transylvanian paintings by Imre Égerházi

Article by Marosvásárhelyi Népújság on June 9, 2007

He was the son of the Great Plain, but he was an absolute believer and lover of Transylvania. He proved this exponentially in deed and work until his death in 2001. He was happy to come here, as he had a great time in the company of his friends from Transylvania and Székelyföld, so much so that he had invited them back to the Hortobágy Creative Camp, something also considered to be his life’s work besides his art, for many years.

It seemed natural that I got to know him at the artists’ colony in Gheorgheni, for example, but the next time we met in Hortobágy, where he was surrounded by many dear acquaintances, painters, graphic artists and sculptors from Hungary. As Debrecen, he was an unmistakable, initiated perpetuator of the Great Plain landscapes, but he left a deep mark on Harghita, Bucsin, the Gheorgheni Basin, the Mureş Valley and other beautiful Transylvanian, Carpathian Basin scenery, as evidenced by his painting.

An exhibition of several of his inspired paintings was opened this week at the Budapest Vármegye Gallery, selected by the artist’s son, Attila Égerházi. Ágoston Székelyhidi, a friend of the writer (also from Debrecen), spoke at the opening of the exhibition about the ideological, emotional, and artistic filling of about 70 oil compositions and graphics made between 1964 and 2001. The atmosphere of the painted Transylvanian landscapes was evoked by the music of the Djabe band. The exhibition will be open until July 13.
