Re: Big names in contemporary figurative sculpture

Here's another name to add to the list: Imre Varga -- who was given his own museum in Budapest (not many living sculptors have been honored in this way -- the only one I can think of was Szukalski -- back in the thirties when Poland made a museum in his honor -- just in time for it to get leveled by a German air raid)

Imre Varga is over 80 by now -- and has done, apparently, hundreds of pieces around Europe - including monuments to Bartok and Wallenburg -- but even though he has a museum -- he doesn't have a web site.

Here's a few pictures I could find:
