Lajos Kozma’s Art Nouveau portfolio with 13 full page drawings.

Kozma’s early and scarce collection of Art Nouveau drawings, that he published soon after his graduation as an architect. During his years at university he joined the group “Fiatalok” (Youth) a circle of architects who were studied the Hungarian folklore and combined its motives and ornaments with the characteristics of Art Nouveau and the style of the Wiener Werkstätte. This album is one of the finest examples of this special, Hungarian-Art Nouveau style. Kozma later turned to Art Déco and Modernism, his path could be followed through his wide-ranging works as an architect, designer and graphic artist.

The portfolio concludes with and essay about the Symbol by Sándor Varjas, the progressive Hungarian philosopher.
