Ostrov Kormoránov (The Isle of Cormorants) is a nature reserve on the Danube, named after its unique bird habitat, which was flooded during the construction of Gabčíkovo dam and reservoir. The river creates wide alluvial plains and small islands parallel to its regulated flow, with specific biotopes within.
Štefan Prohászka-Tallós was a Hungarian artist who often exhibited in Bratislava. He was known for expressive, almost grotesque depictions of public events, markets and feasts, sometimes commenting on the Slovak-Hungarian social tensions. This is one of his more peaceful and nature-oriented works.
