Dezider Milly – a big artist from a tiny village

Dezider Milly was a Rusyn artist born in Kyjov, in the district of Stara Lubovna in eastern Slovakia. He achieved the status of a nationally recognized artist. As you can see, his style was unique (the painting On the Way From Work gives the viewers a feeling of being unfinished, yet it has enough to present the subject matter in a satisfactory way), and already as a graduate he was critically acclaimed. One of his lovely fairy-tale like landscapes was used for a stamp in 2006. For more information on this re-known artist, visit this link.
