A2-A10. Istvan Magyar called Budapest, Hungary home. He was a foundling, adopted at age two, and believed to have been born in 1917. After elementary school he attended Teachers College for many years with others who would become artists and life-long friends. Istvan served as an officer with Germans on the Russian front, and later as the war fell apart, joined French soldiers who knew Switzerland (where he met his wife Cecile) was their way back to France.

Surely an artist at heart, he waited for retirement to explore and experiment with water colors, several of which we are lucky enough to have offered here, oils, including a glazing technique–a technique of masters, sculpture, and Japanese garden design.
Donor: Cecile Magyar
