Hungarian-Canadian artists and musicians have shown distinguished accomplishments in the various disciplines. In the arts they have been honoured amongst the nation's very best in painting, sculpting, engraving, printmaking, etching, as well as in industrial graphics, photography, drawing and, above all, coin design. My bibliography, Canadian Studies on Hungarians (2nd vol., 1995) includes 87 citations and biographical summaries pertaining to 23 artists practicing in Canada on a professional basis. The reference book entitled Professional Hungarian Artists Outside Hungary, by Ernõ Gyimesy Kásás and László Könnyű (1977), introduces information on 48 Hungarian-Canadian artists. My own selection was based on the availability of literature on each individual artist published in the English and French languages, including the monumental Arts in Canada: A Union List of Artists' Files / Artists au Canada… (1988), the two-volume Art and Architecture in Canada (1991), and the seven-volume A Dictionary of Canadian Artists.
