    A rare original signed Watercolour painting by:

    'Julius Komjati' (1894-1958) A.R.E

    The beautiful painting depicts a group of refugees in Buda, Budapest, Hungary, during the Second World War.

    This is one original individual work of several that we are currently selling by the same hand. The collection as a whole is probably one of the largest, most important private collections of Komjati work. There are 17 original signed works in total. Please view our other listings for further details.

    Julius Komjati originally gifted the works to two of the most essential Women in his life and they were recently sold together as part of an estate.

    The collection includes two other original Watercolour paintings and 14 Etchings.

    Indeed, Komjati dedicated this particular painting to Miss Fell, who was possibly his partner at the time. (See Images)

    'Julius Komjati'

    Etcher Julius Komjáti, the son of an Inspector of Forests, was born in Komjat, Hungary. He received a teaching diploma at Budapest in 1911 and entered the Academy of Fine Arts in 1914. Called up for service in the First World War, he was awarded a diploma as Professor of Design at the Academy upon his return, and in 1920 produced his first etchings. In 1927, Komjáti received a scholarship to study in England under Malcolm Osborne at the Royal College of Art and arrived there in 1928. He spent the next ten years in England, and during that time produced a body of superb work, some 74 plates, which were published by H. C. Dickens of London. His work was so highly regarded that he was one of few foreign artists elected to the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers.

    His wartime experience as a prisoner of war, held by the Romanian Army for eighteen months in deplorable conditions, had a profound effect on Komjáti’s art, imparting both an intensity and spirituality that calls to mind the later work of Käthe Kollwitz. He returned to Hungary in 1938 and remained there for the rest of his life

    ABOUT US:-

    Artsonline was founded by Aaron Selby, who began life in the world of Fine Art & Antiques over 25 years ago as an avid collector of Original Paintings and Period Furniture. Back then, his collection and passion grew so large, that he eventually had to sell one piece to replace it for another, as he just did not have enough room in the house to continue amassing his collection further.

    Aaron soon realised that his love and passion of all things Art & Antiques was never going to go away, and so, forward 20 years on, and Aaron now operates a quality globally recognised on-line Fine Art & Antique shop, specialising in the sale of original and authentic works of Fine Art and Antique furniture Pieces.

    Our Fine Art Listing Terminology & Qualifiers


    When a listing's heading reads ''by'' and is followed by the artist's full name (or the artist's initials, if his full name is unrecorded), the work is in our opinion by the artist.

    ''signed by''

    When the term ''signed by'' is used, in our opinion the work has been signed by the artist.

    "attributed to"

    When the expression "attributed to" is used, the work is in our opinion possibly a work by the artist, in whole or in part.

    ''circle of''

    When the expression ''circle of'' is used, the work is in our opinion a work of the period of the artist and showing his influence.

    ''follower of''

    When the expression ''follower of'' is used, the work is in our opinion a work executed in the artist's style but not necessarily by a pupil.

    ''manner of''

    When the expression ''manner of'' is used, the work is in our opinion a work executed in the artist's style but of a later date.


    When the term "after" is used, the work is in our opinion a copy or imitation (of any date) of a work by the artist.

    ''bears signature''

    When the term ''bears signature'' is used in our opinion the signature is by a hand other than that of the artist.

    Thank you for looking, we hope to see you again soon.
