What does the website of the Slovak National Gallery say about the work of art created by Ladislav Mednyánszky? (© - Slovak National Gallery - Slovak National Gallery)

After his studies in Munich and Paris, Ladislav Mednyánszky was one of a few Hungarian artists with experience of new French trends and the Barbizon school. More valuable artistic experience was gained by him during a stay at the painter’s colony in Szolnok in 1880.The main themes in his painting during this period were forest scenes, figures on bridges as well as roadside crucifixes. The painting of night travellers was probably finished during the first half of the 1880’s, and it displays the above-mentioned influences. The motif of the Cross in a forest, symbolising death, occurrs regularly in Mednyánszky’s work. As Csilla Markója writes, „Mednyánszky understood painting as a momentary concentration and a method of crystallizing the strength and energy that he felt towards a motif; he always sought the most suitable way of expression and depiction“. Our theme reflects his interest in unhappiness and suffering. The Forest Path shows three figures with downcast heads, praying in a dark corner of the forest by a Cross during a bright night. The monumental scale of the composition is emphasised by the proportions of the figures as well as by the brilliant light effects. The painter created an almost monochrome composition of shades of brown, from which yellow and orange tones catch the light. A similar motif could have been seen in the All-Saints Day, which was published in the Vasárnapi Újság periodical in 1888.Text: Katarína BeňováLiterature: 111 diel zo zbierok.

  • Aluminium dibond print: Aluminium Dibond prints are metal prints with an impressive effect of depth. For our Direct Aluminium Dibond option, we print your chosen work of art onto the aluminium composite white-primed surface. The colors are bright and vivid in the highest definition, the details of the print are clear and crisp, and you can really feel a matte appearance. The direct print on Aluminum Dibond is the most popular entry-level product and is an extremely contemporary way to showcase art reproductions, as it puts 100% of the viewer’s attention on the whole artwork.
  • The canvas print: A canvas direct print is a printed canvas stretched on a wooden frame. Canvas Prints have the great advantage of being low in weight, which implies that it is quite simple to hang up your Canvas print without extra wall-mounts. Hence, a canvas print is suitable for all kinds of walls.
  • Poster print (canvas material): Our poster is a printed canvas paper with a slightly roughened texture on the surface. It is particularly appropriate for putting the art replica using a customized frame. Please note, that depending on the absolute size of the canvas poster print we add a white margin between 2-6 cm around the print, which facilitates the framing with your custom frame.
  • Print on glossy acrylic glass (with real glass coating): The print on acrylic glass, which is often labelled as a print on plexiglass, will change the original work of art into gorgeous décor and forms a viable alternative option to aluminium or canvas art prints. Your favorite artwork will be custom-made with state-of-the-art UV printing machines. The special effect of this are rich and deep colors.
