A taste of the exhibition
The popular pottery of Mohács had first of all become famous within Hungary because of its special black ceramics. During the 18-19th centuries black pot-makers had worked here together with the local potters, oven-makers and argillaceous smoking pipe makers. In 1718 they formed a guild organisation together, but from 1803 the black pot-makers were working in their independent guild. continue

Mihály Kolbe was born on 9th August 1907, Légrád. He began to deal with fine arts in the circle of Vilmos Aba Novák and Károly Patkó. Between 1925 and 1931 he studied at the Fine Arts Academy. As a student of Oszkár Glatz he went on a study trip to Italy in 1926 and Paris in 1931. Later he moved to Mohács. In 1933 he obtained the MArcell Nemes itinerary scholarship and went to Italy for three months. continue

The coat was joined to them by the belt or cattle cord, whereupon the cattle bell was hung. And most importantly, the sheep skin mask made an inevitable part of their dress. continue
