Drawings And Sketches In Pencil
The Citadel, Budapest, Hungary.
This is a sketch of a very famous landmark in Hungary, in the city of Budapest.
The Citadel was built by the Austrians on the summit of Gille’rt Hill in 1850-54.
This view is from the south of Gille’rt Hill, on which the Liberation Monument
stands. This was erected in 1947 in memory of the Soviet Soldiers who died in
the second world war. It has a giant female figure some 14m (46ft) high and is
over 100 feet high from the base of the plinth. She is bearing a palm branch in
her upraised arms. On the limestone plinth there stands 2 heroic male figures.
The monument was originally commissioned by admiral Hothy in memory of
his son, who was killed in the crusade against Bolshevism.
