Istvan Csicsery-Ronay: Writer and publisher who championed Hungarian literature in the West

Istvá* Csicsery-Rónay started out as a politician and writer and became one of the leading publishers of Hungarian books in the West. In 1953 he founded Occidental Press in Washington, which published, as well as his own works, László Gara's Az ismeretlen Illyés ("The unknown Illyés", 1965) and the French essayist Gaetan Picon's grand anthology of modern Western thought, Korunk szellemi körképe ("Panorama des idées contemporaines", 1957), a book smuggled into Hungary which quickly became compulsory reading for the intellectual élite. Csicsery-Rónay lived much of his life in exile, but as soon as free elections were held in Hungary in 1990 he returned, spending the last two decades of his life in relative comfort.

Caught on camera: 20th-century Hungarian photography

Born from Hungary’s tumultuous start to the twentieth century, The Royal Academy of Arts is exhibiting the work of a generation of artists who have profoundly influenced the course of modern photography.

Eyewitness, Royal Academy, London

If, before visiting this exhibition, you don't have a strong sense of 20th-century Hungarian photography, that is probably because the most important photographers from Hungary were actually positioned across the globe, at the helms of their various practices – fashion, portraiture, documentary, conceptual and photojournalism – in New York, Paris, London and other cities. This instructive exhibition makes the case that the history of photography was shaped to a large degree by practitioners from Hungary, focusing on five key players; and it functions both as an eyewitness history of the 20th century told through images and the tracing of a brave experimental artistic medium. So, whilst László Moholy-Nagy was experimenting with abstract photography at the Bauhaus, Robert Capa was capturing the bloodshed of war. Brassaï was in Picasso's studio or capturing the sleazy nightlife of Paris in the 1930s, whilst Martin Munkácsi was injecting athleticism into the fashion photography at Harper's Bazaar in New York and André Kertész was experimenting with surrealism, narrative and abstraction in his images as he moved around Europe.

'Budapest Bullet' on target for Temple test

Hungary may not be exactly a hotbed of thoroughbred racing; indeed, there is only one significant track in a country with a population of 10 million. The place has, though, made three significant contributions to the sport. The first was the 1876 Derby winner Kisber; the second, the extraordinary mare Kincsem, holder of the world unbeaten record of 54 races, a sequence that included the 1878 Goodwood Cup.
