Sándor Basilides Painter

1901 - 1980

In the years around World War I, the family lived in Vágújhely in the Highlands, which came under Czech rule after the events of Trianon. From there, Alexander and his younger brother, Barna, fled to Pest to begin their art studies. Sándor Basilides was a student of Ede Balló and then Gyula Rudnay at the Academy of Fine Arts. In 1925 he made a study trip to Italy with his brother. Initially, he follows the style of his masters, but soon finds his own individual voice, themes, and mode of expression. The socially sensitive artist often paints the everyday life of post-war Hungary. "My goal is to give back the joy and pain of Man: to perceive human Beauty, to experience the moods of nature" - read his creed in an article published in 1927. The artist, who also obtained a teaching qualification at the Academy, will first be a teaching assistant next to his master, Rudnay, and then a teacher at the Budapest School of Industrial Design - currently the Secondary School of Fine and Applied Arts. Until his retirement in 1968, he was a recognized and renowned lecturer at the institution. His works, painted in the 1930s, are characterized by brighter, brighter colors and solid outlines. In addition to the joys of family life and the tranquility of the holiday home in Balatonalmádi, the depressing atmosphere of the coming war can be felt in his works in the 1940s. This can be seen for the first time in his paintings depicting Lake Balaton. - writes his monograph, Péter N. Horváth. The Vörösberény Pedagogical Artists' Colony was established in the 1940s and became an active member. His name is associated not only with paintings, but also with graphics, poster designs, illustrations and tapestry interviews.
