Pál Szinyei Merse was a Hungarian painter and a politician.
He studied at the Munich Academy in 1864. In 1873, the artist won a medal at the World Fair in Vienna. The same year he returned to his family estate and painted less and less. It was not until 1896 that his work was gradually acknowledged; then he returned to the art life and won several gold and silver medal (1896 Budapest, 1900 Paris, 1901 Munich, 1904 Saint Louis, 1910 Berlin, 1911 Rome).
As Member of the Parliament, he fought for the modernization of art education. In 1905, he was elected the Director of the Academy of Fine Arts of Budapest.
Some of his paintings are considered the earliest examples of Hungarian and Central European Impressionism.
