EXHIBITION OF MIKSA RÓTH - COLORED SUNLIGHT

2015 róthmiksa - slide

Exhibition of Miksa Róth - 19.06.2018 - 07.09.2018

 

He was the founder and leader of the most renowned and productive Hungarian workroom of the glass window and mosaic art which had renewed on the turn of the 19-20 century. His workroom, founded in 1885, received numerous orders thanks to the major construction projects after the Compromise. Builldings for economics and public administration offices, churches, synagogues, showrooms, baths, cafes, private houses and mansions were decorated in his workroom. From the end of the 1890s, foremost in the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy, he applied the new glass type discovered by L. C. Tiffany and nationalized the mosaics making.

His outstanding works include the Parliament, the Holy Right Chapel of the Royal Palace, the Academy of Music, the Venetian Standing Hall of Music of Hungary, the former headquarters of Gresham Insurance, the Cultural Palace of Târgu Mureş and the Lipótmezei chapel. Many tombs and mausoleum in the National Cemetery of Fiumei Street and the cemetery of Kozma Street are decorated with mosaics. He worked with the most important architects and painters of the age. He has also made foreign orders: for example, the glass ceiling of the Mexican National Theater, designed by Géza Maróti (1910), was made in his workroom.

The success story, a rich career with the outbreak of the Second World War, took a tragic turn: after the 1939 Jewish law came out, he closed his workshop. In 1944, he died in his home.

In the exhibition material of the the Balassi Institute's "Colored Sunlight",  with the help of enlarged photos, sketches, contemporary and recent photographs, recalls the diverse and varied work of the workshop; presents the main phases of the career and major works. In addition to their own design and workshops, they are also remembered by the collaboration of the outstanding painters of the era (Bertalan Székely, János Vaszary, the creators of the workshop in Gödöllő, etc.). Most of the original works are in reality located in buildings that are not easy to see. In the exhibition, we show with the help of the photographs the "invisible" glass paintings because of the above. The material of the exhibition was realized with the cooperation of several public institutions and photographer. The curator of the exhibition is Katalin Gellér, art historian, president of the Hungarian Art Nouveau, senior co-worker of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences.

 

Location: Balassi Institute, 10 Treurenberg, 1000 Brussels 

The exhibition presents the main phases of the career and major works with the help of enlarges photos, sketches, contemporary and recent photographs.
