Dóra Maurer art career began in the 1960’s. After college she went to Italy and Greece to suck in the Mediterranean feeling. During her journeys she did not take photos just made some drawings about her experiences like used to do in the 19th century.
Her drawings perpetuate part of landscapes, towns and villages. In this detailed etching we can see a village built on rocks: stairs lead up to the sunbathing glittering houses that create an organic unity with the hill. Typical Mediterranean architectural components welcome the visitors like tiny windows, flat roofs.
This view opens in front of the arriving person. On the colored graphics the smallest details are visible too like scooped holes in the rocks and furrows next to the rock wall. The most dominant color is the white and grey after the fine pastel colors. That is why Dóra Maurer’s artwork seems like an old photograph.
The “Greek village” is more than a realistic genre-painting, it makes an impression of the artist’s personal mood as well. “My artworks’s each parts are memories and experiences from dreams.”- said the artist in the interview.
Dóra Maurer later turned towards to surrealistic and magical matters. She experimented with etchings by secession from the traditional picture creation.
After that her decennial career went towards other directions and she is made a big career. She was the first Hungarian artist who had own exhibition in the open Tate Modern in London.
This early artwork’s value shows that this is the end of Dóra Maurer’s one of the rich artistic creativity period.
