Boromisza Tibor 1880 – 1960 (Snowing in Baia Mare)

Boromisza Tibor

1880 – 1960

Boromisza Tibor trained first at Ferenczy Károly’s private school in Budapest in 1902 and then in the artists’ Colony in Baia Mare starting in 1904. After a short time in Rome in 1905, he left Munich for Paris, where he soon became disillusioned with the teaching methods of the Julian Academy and learned sculpture at the Calarossi Academy. Later back in Baia Mare, Boromisza proves that he is among the artists who gave up the plein-air naturalist style being part of the organizers of the “neo” movement. The artist thus became the formulator of these principles, urging reforms in the independent school, entering into conflicts with his colleagues, thus leaving the Colony in 1914.

In this painting the warm dialog between the complementary colors yellow and purple distributed in the main role, but also the accents of red in accord with the green, warm a cold winter atmosphere. The outline of the present square was made over the 15th and 19th centuries, starting with the late Gothic, whose representative is the St. Stephen’s Tower, part of the Gothic church that was demantelized in 1848. The Fortress Square, a place with a rich historical heritage that brings together five churches of as many religious confessions (Orthodox, Roman Catholic, Greek Catholic, Reformed and Lutheran), proof of multiculturalism and religious pluralism present in the area.
