Biography

Painter, a representative of Hungarian Biedermeier. He was Johann Jacob Stunder's pupil in Pest. He went to St. Petersburg to paint several portraits in the tsar's court. The standard of his works was somewhat unbalanced with attempts at more daring compositions and energetic portrayal (A.P. Ratkov, Gureev, etc.). He copied pictures in the Hermitage in 1810 to improve his art. He returned to Hungary in 1824 and worked in Eperjes until his death. His major works: Ignác Feszler, 1824, Ferenc Kazinczy" 1825 and G. Romlaki. He painted the altar-piece Christ and the Doubting Thomas in 1834.
