Lot description
Born in Budapest in 1873, Hugó Scheiber (1873-1950) moved to Vienna at the age of eight and returned to Budapest in 1898, studying painting at the Commercial Art School. He completed his education in 1900 and became interested in the works of the German Expressionist and Futurist artists. He joined the Futurist movement officially in 1915, invited by Marinetti. He began gaining critical acclaim for his works in 1919 and the same year, two of his drawings were purchased by the Budapest Art Museum. He returned again to Vienna in 1920, and his work was noticed by the founder of Germany’s avant-garde periodical Der Sturm, Herwath Walden. Walden took an interest in Scheiber’s paintings, which he soon featured in the magazine. It was not long before Scheiber’s works were included in international exhibitions in major cities including London, Rome, and New York. Scheiber’s works are revered for the spontaneity in his brushstrokes and his ability to incorporate the stylish Futurist aesthetic.
