The Sculptures of the Parliament Building

The Sculptures of the Parliament Building

This volume provides a comprehensive description of the 242 full-length sculptures designed by Imre Steindl for the Parliament building's interior and facade, allowing an insight into the history of their making and the art and lives of the 29 sculptors who created them. Although this sculptural material of exceptional complexity had to endure repeated adversities, it continues to preserve in a virtually unaltered fashion the original intention to pay a tribute to Hungary's greatest historical figures, the noblest virtues of its statesmen and all Hungarians ever represented within the Parliament's walls.
