The carnival by the hungarian painter tibor dengyel (1913-2000)
A FEW OLD PRESS REVIEWS ABOUT THIS PAINTER MISSING 19 YEARS AGO.
"The painter Dengyel is a kind of Hungarian Teniers!" He uses a lively color in accordance with his optimistic inspiration.
CHARLES BERNARD (The Belgian Nation)
"Dengyel has dazzling studies, pieces of bravery that are reminiscent of Ensor, and his light-toned chords are very beautiful and very bright."
LYDIE DESPRECHINS (The Free Belgium)
"..It takes us into the whirlwind of a shimmering and joyous spectacle ...... but as for Watteau the party is not without a future and the point guard with sharp fingers is there to remind us of the melancholy of wake up. "PAUL CASO (The Evening)
"... There is a crazy atmosphere, at once comical and cruel, with a rather surprising lyricism." STEHANE REY (The Free Belgium)
"His works, faithful to the rules of classical painting, were nonetheless inventive, dynamic and nourished with folklore and festive spirit, Dengyel's work is my favorite of this exhibition". ANITA NARDON
"He evolves in a world of legends that are masks, carnivals, shadows from ancient times." Gray, red, blue, his world breeds stray musicians, witches, all the magic of rural populations. Man of all peasant folklores, Dengyel presents them in a furious round, a cruel nothing and full of sap ". ANITA NARDON (1983)
"But it is especially in the staging of great carnivals, carnival scenes and other festivities that Tibor Dengyel has given the best of himself.We feel here very clearly the inspiration of village festivals, farandoles, this joy a gourmet who illuminates an existence governed by the rhythm of nature.A baroque profusion of characters, couples, masks, small scenes drowned in the mass gives his paintings an astonishing vitality.Bos Bosch, Brueghel and Ensor gathered within the same universe, that's what Tibor Dengyel succeeded in these works that remain so very personal ".
