WE COLLECT AND KEEP ART FOR MANY REASONS
Our site is a FREEDOM and DEMOCRACY site. We sponsor artists who were involved in Freedom struggles, artists who survived dictatorships and fought for freedom and democracy and in the case of Kallos an artist who survived Auschwitz to tell his story of survival.
PAUL KALLOS was a survivor of the concentration camps and an artist whose work speaks of his experiences, his efforts to survive and narrate through art his life in the camps and in freedom away from home. He survived Auschwitz where many of his relatives perished and finally found his purpose in life in Paris, where he settled after escaping occupied by the Russians Hungary, his native country.
Our high quality piece is an original oil on canvas 144 x 116 cm signed 1962 oil painting. It belongs to the mature period of the artist’s work. In a letter to us in mid 1990s Kallos called the work a figurative painting.
