Through the analysis of two examples from the collection of the Ferenc Hopp Museum of Eastern Asiatic Arts (FHMEA), Budapest, this short paper proposes a possible background for what might be regarded as the most common type of Southern Iranian brassware of the 8th/14th century. The article argues that certain religious institutions, especially the shrine of Sheikh Abū Ishāq Kāzerūnī might have had a role in its evolution.
Eclipsed by his better-known contemporaries, Johann Norbert Baumgartner is chiefly remembered today as the painter of the Kapuzinerkirche in Vienna. Himself having been a Capuchin, the bulk of his activity fell into Hungary, where several convents were built newly or needed refurbishment within a remarkably short time-span. The Capuchin monastic centres at Bratislava (Pozsony, Preßburg), Mór, Mosonmagyaróvár, Mosonszentmiklós and Máriabesnyő were all decorated by Baumgartner who also carried out a number of other ecclesiastical projects, both in Hungary and elsewhere. Of particular importance are the four sopraporte in the Roman Capuchin church, S. Maria della Concezione. His Neo-Classical style and local presence was highly esteemed in Hungary at the turn of the nineteenth century, when art and national thought began to mingle.
A class of Kukles differential systems of degree five having an invariant conic is examined. We show the coexistence of small
amplitude limit cycles, large amplitude limit cycles, under perturbations of the coefficients of the systems.
