It is clear that the Kings and Blounts were influenced by the peasant art of central Europe and in some of the latter day handicrafts of Hungary, this influence is still evident. The textile colours reminded me of the bright blue vegetable dyed fabrics from the Peasant Arts movement. The simple decoration of the mezeskalacs (gingerbread biscuits) design showing a symmetry of two doves reminded me of some of Godfrey Blount's compositions. It was lovely to chance across various pieces of folk art whilst casually walking around the city.
