Between 1908-11, he studied at the Art School in Budapest. In 1912 he went to Munich where he worked under Walter Thorn, and became a student of Angelo Jank, one of the founders of "Sezession", where Frank's pictures were exhibited. As a young painter, he was praised for character portrayal. He was awarded a prize for his "Self Portrait" in 1916.

After World War I, he moved to Paris where his works were exhibited by the Societé des Artistes Français and the Salon d'Automne. At an exhibition in the Bleinheim Jeune Gallery in 1926, "Mimi", a portrait, was awarded "Mention Honorable", and later "Diplôme d'Honnoeur" at an exhibition in Bordeaux.

On his return to Hungary, he worked in Budapest and spent summers in Mártély in the following decade. His art was influenced by cubism in the late 20s when his white period began. In the 30s Paris and Mártély played a decisive role in his art until he found his own expressive style. (Source: www.hung-art.hu)

The artist belonged to École de Paris (School of Paris) which refers to two distinct groups of artists — a group of medieval manuscript illuminators, and a group of non-French artists working in Paris before World War I. Additionally, it refers to a similar group of artists living in Paris between the two world wars.
