Csontváry -- The Master of Mystical Ambiguities and of Light
Csontvary's work is hard to categorize. He is a painter who followed his inner voice and left us many paintings that touch upon surrealism, symbolism, post impressionism, fauvism, and something that is uniquely his own, mysterious and strangely beautiful.
Light is the crucial element in several of his paintings. It changes the reality and transports the viewer into emotionally charged realms: some peaceful and dreamlike, others reflecting the inner turmoil of the master.
The overview of some of Csontvary's works -from the perspective of a working artist-may provide some of the insights into his unique use of light and symbolic elements that so strongly appeal to contemporary viewers.
