Artistic Focus Karoly Fulop’s early paintings and batiks melded medieval influences with the Symbolist and Impressionist focus of early 20th Century Viennese painting, as well as the Art Deco aesthetic of the time. His later sculptural work often depicted religious processions, rituals and practices, and reflected the emerging trend toward polychromatic sculpture – with his creations of groupings of figures with colored glazes on ceramic, as well as wood sculptures featuring gold leaf, ivory inlays and colored pigments.
• Fulop studied art in Budapest, Munich and Paris
before immigrating to New York around 1920.
