Hungarian painter, Judit Reigl (born in 1923) studies at the Academy of Arts in Budapest. In 1950, she escapes from her country and settles down in France. In Paris, she meets the surrealists. Her series of the Guano for example arises from a creation process which comes in the ” objective fate “, from André Breton. Her work is composed of several periods, among others Outburst (1955-1958), Guano (1958-1959), Mass Writing (1959-1965), Man (1966-1972) and Unfolding (1973-1980).
