Hincz, Gyula Portrait of a man

Hincz, Gyula: Portrait of a man
Private collection Hungary


One of the defining figures of the great graphic generation of the sixties was Gyula Hincz, whose not only biography but also his art is branching in many ways. During his long and prolific career, he made not only paintings, etchings, but also sculptures, book illustrations, mural works (ceramics, tapestries, glass mosaics) and ink drawings. Even as a college student, he went on a study trip to the Venice Biennale and Paris in 1926. While in the former he could study the works of Italian futurists and Russian constructivists, in the latter he could see the works of well-known Cubist artists such as Pablo Picasso or Georges Braque, the purist Fernand Léger or the surrealist Joan Miró.
It can be said that these creators and the trends associated with them certainly influenced the art of Gyula Hincz, which is mostly characterized by the classicist way of composing and expressive expression, which tends to surrealism.
The ink drawing entitled The Man's Head is a work created mostly by the virtuoso's imagination, the subtitle of Gyula Hincz and its head are all but ordinary, simple geometric shapes (circles, triangles) "floating", mechanical structures "clicking". . The composing mode, which fills almost the entire surface, moves simultaneously on the ground of figurativeness and non-figurativeness, but they may also seem to merge to form a complex yet complex system of relationships. And the thickly drawn and dense lines, like the deeply reaching roots of the tree, meander and swirl with each other.
The Male Head is definitely a remarkable work by Gyula Hincz, which he made towards the end of his creative career (in the 1970s), at the time when he was also working on the sixteen-part glass mosaic of the Budapest University of Technology V / 2 building and on science and technology. it allowed him to formulate a completely abstract thing.
