Ország, Lili Ungvár, 1926 - 1978, Budapest
Completed her studies at the Hungarian Academy of Fine Arts between 1945 and 1950. She was the designer of the State Puppet-Theatre from 1950 until her death, with only a short break. A number of artists worked in the institution at the time, with some people from the circle of the European School. She made the acquaintance of Endre Bálint, whom she thought of as her master in 1953, he was the first to understand and acknowledge her work. The basic motives of her pictures are associated with her travels: Slavic mysticism and icon-painting effected her in Bulgaria, in Prague the sight of the stones of the Jewish graveyard struck her, while on her trip to Israel in 1966 she discovered the motives she had already painted in Jerusalem and Haifa. She visited Naples and Pompeii a number of times between 1968 and 1974.
She painted her Labyrinth series, a summary of her work, between 1973 and 1978.
