Géza Jászai in Budapest

St. Paulus-Dom, Münster
Art historian Géza Jászai is in Budapest these days, and he will take part in a round-table discussion dedicated to his career at the Art History Department of Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest on October 21. After leaving Hungary, Géza Jászai studied in Munich with Hans Sedlmayr, Wolfgang Braunfels, and Wilhelm Messerer. He played a key role in editing Kirschbaum's Lexikon der christlichen Ikonographie.

Later he spent the bigger part of his career at Münster, where he worked at the Westfälisches Landesmuseum für Kunst und Kulturgeschichte and created the Cathedral Museum at Münster. He worked as the first curator of the institution from 1981 to 2000. In addition to publishing extensively on the medieval objects in the collections of Münster, Géza Jászai wrote on other subjects, such as Giovanni and Nicola Pisano's pulpits in the cathedral and the baptistery of Pisa (1968, 2010, respectively), and also on Botticelli. You can see his selected works by entering the Regesta Imperii Opac, or even more publications if you carry out a search in the Union Catalogue of the Art Libraries Network. For more information and photos of Münster cathedral, in addition to the website of the cathedral, click here.
