The Hungarian etcher, Julius KomjŠti came to England in 1927, and it was in this country that the vast bulk of his etched work was either produced or, in the instance of his early plates, first published. Julius KomjŠti had been one of only two thousand people, out of an original sixteen thousand, to survive over a yearís captivity in the hands of the Roumanians during the First World War. The terrible experiences which he had suffered during his captivity found poignant expression though his etchings, many of which display Julius KomjŠtiís deep religious convictions regarding the suffering of his fellow men.
