This watercolour by Bela Kadar was executed circa 1910. It belonged to Max (Sandor) Hevesi (1894-1948), one of the most eminent Hungarian art dealers in Vienna pre-war. After studying Art History and Law in Budapest, where he met the artists of the Avant Garde (including Kadar and Scheiber), he opened his gallery in Vienna in 1919. Hugo Scheiber recounts in his memoirs that he went to Vienna in 1923 to find a gallery that would exhibit their work and Hevesi immediately took them on and achieved great success with their works. He also introduced the two artists to Herwath Waldens gallery in Berlin “der Sturm” where they both exhibited with success in the late 20s. In 1938, Hevesi fled to England with his wife and two children and set up the Hazlitt gallery in St James’s. Jack Baer bought the Hazlitt gallery in 1946 (including all of its contents) and it became Hazlitt, Gooden and Fox in the early fifties. This watercolour has been in a folder since 1946 and is in pristine condition.
