Biography from Papillon Gallery:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Béla Kádár 1877-1956

Born in Budapest, he became a distinctive modernist painter whose career spanned several decades.

Kádár began his studies in 1896, he travel to Paris and Munich.  He attended the Academy of Fine Arts in Budapest and won the Kohner prize in 1910.

Kádár's early works, which he began exhibiting in 1918, showed the influence of the Secessionists and Post-impressionists.  In 1923 he exhibited with his friend Hugo Scheiber in Berlin at Walden's Der Sturm Gallery; 57 of his works were shown.  Der Sturm was one of the most important avant-garde galleries in Europe, Kádár continued to exhibit there for several years.

Kádár traveled to the United States and stayed for a year.  He exhibited with the Société Anonyme at the Brooklyn Museum.  In 1929 he returned to Budapest to exhibit his works in his home country.

Kádár was personal friends with Chagall, Picasso, Kandinsky and Kokoschka.  Like his contemporaries his style evolved through the decades of the 20th century.  Always a modernist, his works have elements of Cubism, Futurism, Neo-Primitivism, Constructivism, and Expressionism.  His subjects range from Hungarian legends,
metaphysical, portraits, and fanciful decorative themes.

Kádár's place in the history of Modern Art has been assured by the recent publication of two books on his life and works.


Biography from Louis Stern Fine Arts:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Bela Kadar was born in Budapest and became one of the most well known artists of the Hungarian Avant-Garde during the first half of the 20th Century.

Kadar attended the Academy of Fine Arts in Budapest and won the Kohner prize in 1910.  Though his early work reflected the influence of the Secessionists and Post Impressionists, he can most truly be classified as a modernist. 

Along with his fellow Hungarian, Hugo Scheiber, the artist traveled to Berlin in 1923 and began exhibiting with one of the most important avant-garde galleries in Europe, Der Sturm.   His work was included in the highly influential journals, Der Sturm and Ma, during the 20’s.  As a result of his relationship with Der Sturm, Kádár’s work was also included in Société Anonyme, Inc, organized by Katherine Dreier, Man Ray and Marcel Duchamp and exhibited at the Brooklyn Museum in 1926.

The artist’s style evolved over the decades to incorporate elements of Cubism, Futurism, Constructivism and Expressionism.  However, his subject matter was consistently based on Hungarian legends with a metaphysical overview or a strong decorative theme.  He died in Budapest in 1956.
