Budapest painter Andor Dudits (*1866 – 1944) created a monumental wall painting in honour of Francis II Rákóczi in the Cathedral of St Elizabeth in Košice from 1914 to 1916. It belonged to one of the last adaptations of the topic of anti-Habsburg resistance in painting in the Hungarian Kingdom. It was created based on a competition organized by the State Monuments Commission. With it, Dudits continued his previous Art Nouveau works in the sacral space (Bačka Topola, 1908; Brezno, 1909). Its concept and composition can be compared to the painting The Bridge of Life by Walter Crane, which was exhibited in the form of a graphic in Budapest. The impression of a mosaic, golden background, the look of Rákóczi’s mother Jelena Zrinska, and a funeral procession point also to other Pre-Raphaelite inspirations.
