Geza Voros (1897-1957). Hungarian Artist. Still Lifes and Flowers
Geza Voros studied at the Budapest Academy of Fine Arts. He exhibited one of his paintings at the age of only 19. His artistic and decorative painting combines the objectivity of Neo-Classicism and the elegant sensuousness of the École de Paris.
He lived in Nagybánya and Szolnok, the art colonies in Hungary. Around that time he met his future wife, Anna, who became the main model for his figure paintings.
Geza Voros was a success with his still-lifes and interiors as well. In 1927 the artist made his first study tour to Paris where he met Matisse who had a great influence on him, which is reflected in the daring contrasts of colours, in the ornamental details in his paintings. Vörös' paintings in the 1920s and 30s are beautiful examples of the excellent artistry of the École de Paris.
