Dissolving: Old gentlemen

József Rippl-Rónai: My father and Uncle Piacsek drinking red wine, 1907

“Byale (Biała Podlaska, Lublin province), 1926. Father and son. To protect himself from the
Evil One, Leyzer Bawół, the blacksmith, will not say how old he is, but he must be
over one hundred. Now his son continues the job, and the old man has become
a doctor. He sets broken arms and legs.” Photo by Alter Kacyzne

I had an album, a very good edition of József Rippl-Rónai's paintings! Unfortunately it was lost when moving to another flat. What an artist he is!!!

One of my favorite Hungarian painters, too. Just now there was a great exhibition of his works, and a beautiful volume has been published. Please give me your address in private mail, and I will send it to you.
