Reprodution of Bem in Transylvania Panorama on Display

Friday, 16 August 2013

A reduced in size copy of Bem in Transylvania panorama is on display at an open-air exhibition in the city of Miskolc, Hungary. This 1:3 copy (3x43 meters) was produced in 2009 for the city of Tarnow, exhibited there in 2010 and moved on to several cities in Hungary and Romania.

The original panorama was finished in 1898 for the ceremonies of the Hungarian Millenium. Painted by Styka and some Hungarian painters, it was exhibited in Budapest for 10 years. In 1907 it was moved to Warsaw and after the exhibition there cut into fragments and disappeared. The Museum in Tarnow (home town of the painter Josef Bem) identified 32 fragments and owns 14 of them.
