A little known group of Hungarian artists who were students at the Hungarian Academy of Fine Arts, Budapest in 1927-1930, joined by a few artists from outside the Academy, were modernists, explored the Soviet Russian avant-garde and abstraction, and therefore were rejected by the mainstream, official art in Hungary. However, the strictly principled left-wing Munka (Work) Circle of Lajos Kassák was not hospitable to therm, either. Members of “The Progressives” group left Hungary in 1930. The increasingly classicist Hungarian avant-garde did not tolerate bias; thus the idiosyncratic poet and artist Tamkó-Sirató had to leave Hungary, too and develop his Dimensionism in Paris.
