Anna, Margit Borota, 1913 - 1991, Budapest
In 1936 she finished the Budapest academy of Fine Arts as a pupil of János Vaszary. From 1937 she worked with her husband, Imre Ámos at the Szentendre colony every summer. In 1946-1948 she exhibited her work combining a naive childlike outlook and surrealistic associations together with the members of the European School. The dreamlike atmosphere of her grimacing female figures and bizarre creatures convey the quivers in the deepest layers of the soul.
Her art always drawn to the primitive, was enriched by folklore motives from the 1970s to produce works of lurid colours and an exuberant peasant-Rococo ornamentation. The challenging frailness of the violently painted figures decorated with flowers, laces and wreaths reminiscent of folk puppets, suggest the grotesqueness, at times the plain absurdity of human existence. Her oeuvre was presented at the Ernst Museum in 1948 and 1968. Since 1984, a permanent exhibition of her works can be seen in Szentendre.
