Tivadar Csontváry Kosztka (1853 – 1919) was a Hungarian painter who was part of the avant-garde movement of the early twentieth century. He was one of the first Hungarian painters to become known in Europe. I really love his works.
We didn’t know what Cella Septichora is. “It’s a Early Christian Cemetery, and here’s a world heritage site. Let’s get into this house.”
Early Christian Necropolis of Pécs (Sopianae); in the 4th century, a remarkable series of decorated tombs were constructed in the cemetery of the Roman provincial town of Sopianae (modern Pécs).
We are walking to the next room through the narrow tunnel. It’s called “Wine pitcher burial chamber.” I don’t know why they call it so.
These are important both structurally and architecturally, since they were built as underground burial chambers with memorial chapels above the ground.
It’s a nice painting, isn’t it? We are going to the St. Peter and Paul burial chamber through in front of this painting.
The tombs are important also in artistic terms, since they are richly decorated with murals of outstanding quality depicting Christian themes.
We are running out of time, let’s go out and to the cathedral.
