This is a personal blog about Hungarian art history. It does not aim to give a full picture; instead, it reflects my own interests and views. That said, one of the reasons for starting it was the realisation that there is fairly little out there on the web about Hungarian art history in English – and here I am not talking about web galleries, but substantial information on new research, on current questions and scholarly debates. I hope that by blogging in English about my favourite topics I will be able to fill a little part of that void.
My name is Nóra Veszprémi, and I am an art historian specialising in 19th-century art. Predictably, most of the posts here will be about the 19th and early 20th century. Please bear with me.
The posts published here are meant for a wider, international audience, not (just) scholars of Hungarian art history, therefore I am purposedly avoiding scholarly language. Instead of a complete bibliography, I am only referencing the publications on which the post is based – that is, recent publications of the latest original research. Those who are interested can find further reading by consulting these works.
