Van Geyt Fine Art
From April until October 10, 2007 Van Geyt Fine Art in Budapest is featuring"The Fables of La Fontaine; Romantic Engravings of Auguste Delierre".
Jean de La Fontaine (July 8, 1621 – April 13, 1695) was the most famous French fabulist and his fables are the subjects for Delierre's engravings. Auguste Delierre, born in Paris in 1829, was a well known painter and engraver who had regular exhibitions at the Salon in Paris between 1852 and 1882. He painted animals, the hunt, landscapes as well as genre and history paintings. Auguste Delierre is well known for his engravings on the Fables of La Fontaine. This collection of engravings are from 1883. Van Geyt Fine Art promotes their work with a Gallery Portfolio at absolutearts.com.
Peter van Geyt established the Van Geyt art gallery shortly after the Second World War. After having spent his youth hiding from the occupying Germans in attics and ditches in the Netherlands, Peter decided to turn his hobby into his profession. The gallery gradually grew in name and began to exhibit famous twentieth century Dutch and Belgian artists such as Wim Oepts, Kees Verwey, Hermanus Berserik, Carel Willink and Paul Delveaux. Many of which became Peter's personal friends over the years. As a result of his long and fruitful career a large range of paintings has found its way into several interesting art collections.
In 1980 his son Michael, joined the company, becoming director a few years later. Through Michael's large range of tastes the Van Geyt's art gallery's spectrum started broadening with additional art from the seventeenth to the twentieth century being added to the collection. The main focus is now on Dutch and Hungarian nineteenth and Twentieth century art. Besides the above mentioned artists we now also show work of Bela Czobel, Jozsef Egry, Bela Kadar, Janos Vaszary, Odon Marffy and
Jozsef Rippl Ronai. Currently the collection is presented from London and Budapest. The latter being the place where the business is located. However, the Van Geyt Fine Art is able to arrange viewings in the Benelux and other European countries as well.
