Gaber Peterdi was born in Budapest in 1915. He was given his first one man show at the Ernst Museum in Budapest in 1930 and shortly thereafter was awarded the coveted Prix de Rome for painting. In 1933 Peterdi began his apprenticeship in the art of print-making under the demanding tutelage of Stanley William Hayter at Atelier 17 in Paris.

Mr. Peterdi is the recipient of many honors and awards. His work is represented at the Museum of Modern Art, New York; The Metropolitan Museum, New York; and more than 80 other fine museums throughout the world. He is presently teaching at Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut.

From Billboard - April 7, 1962: With over 20 versions of this colorful classic in the catalog, this one has what it takes to get a substantial share of the business. The fine French orchestra captures the flavor of the Gallic masterpiece in a broadly played, unhurried interpretation. Outstanding reproduction and silent surfaces additionally serve to make this an exceptional release of an ever popular work.
