RARE illustrated monograph on the art and life of an eminent Hungarian painter and graphic artist Ilka Gedo (1921-1985), including a catalog of her works, chronological review, the list of her graphic works, the list of exhibitions, the list of works in public collections, bibliography and documents, catalog of works and collection of documents, all prepared by the artist`s son - David Biro. The introduction is by a distinguished Hungarian art critic Istvan Hajdu. Ilka Gedo still did not receive the recognition she deserves during her lifetime, and thus, this publication is an important step towards recognition of this great 20th-century artist, known until now mostly for her work series called `Budapest ghetto`, `the Ganz Factory` and `Table Series`. Contains 152 color and numerous b&w reproductions of Gedo`s works. 320x250mm. 258 pages. Hardcover with dust-jacket (both lllustrated). Jacket slightly rubbed. Jacket bottom edge creased. Jacket rear side bottom edge slightly torn and taped. Spine edges slightly bumped. Cover slightly curved. Pages slightly wavy. [SUMMARY]: This extremely rare comprehensive illustrated catalog of works and vast collection of materials on the life of "one of the solitary masters of Hungarian art", still not duly recognised, is otherwise in good condition.
