Marcel Ronay: Tranquility and Stability after two World Wars

The Lightbox

3 February – 11 March 2018

Seascapes, urban scenes and landscapes offer insight into Hungarian artist Marcel Ronay’s experiences in England after the First World War.

Marcel Ronay, Chiswick: Urban Scene

Having settled in England in 1936 after emigrating through Hungary, Germany and Austria during the First World War, Marcel Ronay produced works that reflected his personal contentment after meeting his wife and starting a family. 

In stark contrast to an earlier exhibition at The Lightbox in 2014, which concentrated on Ronay’s explorations of hedonism and corruption in Vienna in the wake of the war, this exhibition focuses on pastoral and bucolic images, taking in locations from Wales and Windsor Castle to Chiswick.  

This free exhibition is hosted in the Art Fund Prize gallery – a permanent space at the Lightbox marking the gallery’s Museum of the Year win in 2008.
