Farewell to ethnographer Csupor István (1952–2020). Csupor István began working at the Museum of Ethnography’s ceramics collection in 1983. He was a student of Kresz Mária and earned a PhD in ethnography at ELTE University in Budapest. He worked at the Museum of Ethnography for 33 years during which time he completed an important project reviewing the 22,000 piece ceramics collection. He published 11 volumes and 49 studies – all on folk ceramics. He curated exhibitions, founded the Dr. Kresz Mária Foundation and Ceramics Center and was president of the Hungarian Heritage House Folk Crafts Consulting Body. He retired officially from the Museum of Ethnography in 2015, but remained more than active in his field. The farewell by Vida Gabriella from the website of the Museum of Ethnography are printed here.
