Ámos, Imre Nagykálló, 1907 - 1944, Ohrruf
Came to the Hungarian Academy of Fine Arts in 1929, following studies at the Technical University. His was a versatile talent, which included performing music and writing poetry. In the beginning of the thirties he changed his name (Ungár) to Ámos, alluding to the first smaller prophet; consciousness of his own identity was one of the main inspirations for his paintings. He married another painter, Margit Anna in 1935; their relationship is memorialised in many poems and paintings. They visited Szentendre, at the invitation of Lajos Vajda, for the first time in the summer of 1937, regularly returning to paint there. They travelled to Paris at the end of 1937, where they looked closely at Picasso's works, were invited to Chagall's studio and showed their own works. Premonitions of the Second World War, the sense of mounting peril induced by the anti-Jewish laws and the introduction of forced-labour service appeared as prophetic visions in his paintings and drawings. The house named after them in Szentendre commemorates him and his wife.
