VIENNA.—Josef von Diveky, whose re-
markable etchings and book illustrations
have of late attracted much attention on
the Continent, is a young Hungarian
artist who having acquired the theory and practice
of his profession in Vienna now resides in Brussels.
He has made rapid headway, for he is an artist
gifted with a fine imagination and an admirable
power of expressing his thoughts. His study is
humanity, and from humanity he draws his in-
spiration; consequently his etchings teem with the
force of Life. He has a keen eye for decorative

The Fortune Seeker, The Pilgrim, and The Bridge
are notable expressions of the view of life peculiar
to the artist. He is a capital draughtsman and
understands the printing of etchings and of books,

liaving acquired his experience in this craft with
the firm of Rosenbaum in Vienna.
