Margit Kovacs (1902-1977), ceramist and sculptor, was one of the leading figures of modern Hungarian ceramics. She was among those who, in the new spirit of the applied arts, helped win acceptance for ceramics in Hungary. Her art is characteristically Hungarian. Her oeuvre is significant in every branch of ceramics: figures, plates and pitchers, tiles, murals and reliefs came from under her hands in abundance.
The upswinging curve of her career — marked by repeated successes and acknowledgement both at home and abroad — was unbroken until her death.
ILONA PATAKY-BRESTYANSZKY is an art historian on the staff of the Hungarian National Gallery, and the author of numerous studies. Her book is written with great care to detail and is based on decades of research.
The chronological picture of Margit Kovacs's career analyses the major influences on the artist. From the art of the past, her formalistic solutions have incorporated the piety of medieval miniatures, the naivete of the icons of the East Orthodox churches and of the statues of the rustic altars of Baroque churches as well as the riches of Persian miniatures and the decorative riches of the art of the Hungarian people.
The volume contains 65 colour plates and 147 black-and-white photographs.
