Budapest Boy in Prison

We are remembering the 1956 revolution with the photo which was presented by Professor István Bartha just a few days ago. The photo shows Nándor Wagner's paper fresco titled "Budapest Boy in Prison" which was taken in 1957. Nándor after arriving to Sweden made a series of his impressions about the Hungarian Revolution in 1956 and the cruel squelch after it. His works were exhibited several times. This paperfresco is signed and contains a secret message "Dec.7. 1956. - Feb.4. 1957. I shall die abounded and orphaned today". We knew about his works remembering 1956 Hungarian Revolution, but this is the first time to get to see one. If you had a photo or the actual piece would you let us know it please.
