Background: From outside, this farm looks as the others in the neighbourhood of Hodmezovasarhely. But when we enter the house, instead of a living room, we see a studio. Ferenc Szalai, one of the most talented members of the young painter generation, paints the portrait or a peasant girl. The 27 years old artist is the child of peasant parents; 3 years ago he finished the high school. He takes his themes from the life of the people. His graphic works of art too testify of his masterful skill. Ferenc Szalai spent his practising months during his high school years here and became so attached to this region, that he settled down here. Since then he lives in this farm with his beloved horse and faithful puli dog. The favourite theme of the young painter is - his own horse. He visits the region daily on horseback. He looks out those who work in the fields and immortalizes their work and customs, their everyday life in his drawings and paintings.
