Vida Gabor (1937 - 1999): The Chestnut Vendor, Oil on panel, 49.53 x 40.01 cm, Private Collection Vida Gabor was born to a simple working Hungarian family in 1937. He became attracted to music in his early youth and received a music scholarship. He studied and mastered the flute. In 1956, he began working as a flute soloist in the Philharmonic orchestra for the Budapest Opera and continued for 25 years. Although, he has always been painting and sculpting throughout his life, he decided to dedicate himself completely to painting in 1977, and to achieve the highest standards in this fine art, creating his own unique style. Gabor usually spends several months to finish just one painting. His subjects are mainly inspired by his culture and the old European World. His characters are very realistic and yet whimsical depicting a variety of scenes. He takes the viewer deep into his own world which combines reality with fantasy. He prefers to paint at night to fully focus on his composition. In fact, most of his paintings depict night scenes. The viewer will notice a source of light i.e. lamp or candle often used in his themes evoking emotions of warmth and magic. 🌟🌟🌟❄️🎄🎉💐🎁⛄🎈🎶 👋🙋‍♂️‍ Wishing You All a Happy, Healthy, Peaceful New Year! 🙋‍♂️☃️🎶🎁💐❄️🎄🎉🌟🌟🌟
