Rare, antique, 1940's (WWII Era) one-of-a-kind signed ORIGINAL oil painting by the world famous 20th-century Hungarian painter Karoly Szegvari (signed by the artist in red -- SEE PICS of signature). $600 (or Best Offer) and it's yours! Motivated seller so don't be shy to make me an offer.

After contacting 3 different art director's at the most prominent art galleries in Hungary, the responses were UNANIMOUS that this painting is indeed an ORIGINAL by Karoly Szegvari. However, only a fortune teller may know the answer as to how this Hungarian-made (WorldWarII-era) painting ended up in a small town in Upstate NY (roughly 80 years after its creation).

The frame has some missing parts, and there are some minor blemishes on the painting itself, but overall the artwork is in fair to good condition, considering it's age (approx. mid-late 1940's). All this rare and original painting needs is a new frame, and a new home.

Other than a rough estimate of the year it was painted, very little is known about the history (provenance) of this one-of-a-kind original oil painting by Szegvari. This unique painting is sort of a rare enigma. It may in fact be one of his very first oil paintings. It will definitely be a unique addition to any private art collection.

Title: Unknown
Size: 36in x 24in
Signed by the Artist: Yes (in Red)
Provenance: Purchased at a local shop.

Here are some more details about the Artist:

Very few original paintings done by Karoly Szegvari exist in the public realm as most of his works are displayed in prominent museum's and/or private collections throughout the world. In 2000 he received Hungary's Contemporary Artist Gold Medal award.

Most of Karoly Szegvari's works are in the public collections of the Déri Museum in Debrecen, Hungary, the Museum Royaux in Brussels, Belgium, the Vatican Museum in Rome, the National Gallery in London and the Petofi Literary Museum in Budapest." [Source: The Orly Museum of Hungarian Culture]

"Károly Szegvári was born in Tószeg, Hungary in 1920 and died in Budapest in 2002. Károly Szegvári began his studies in the private school of György Szűcs and later studied at the Hungarian Academy of Fine Arts with Masters Rezső Burghardt and László Bencze. In 1942 he won a scholarship to Italy and thereafter studied in Paris. In 1968 he won the Fermoba, Franc International Art Competition's Grand Jury Award. In 1972 he was invited to paint the Chapelle Royale's alter pieces in Selibe, France. In 2000 he received Hungary's Contemporary Artist Gold Medal."
