Historical Significance
Charles Csuris parents immigrated to the United States from Hungary and settled in a coalmining town in West Virginia. They later relocated to Cleveland, Ohio. Hungarian was spoken in his childhood home, and many other aspects of Hungarian culture were prevalent in his early life. Several of Csuris works are impressionistic interpretations of the social scenes and life moments that filled his early experiences. The light-hearted sketch, showing camaraderie and friendship, that was used as a texture map in The Hungarians brings life and vibrancy to what otherwise would have been a featureless three-dimensional space.
