Benkhard, Ágost 1882 - 1961
A pupil of Tivadar Zemplényi at the Pattern Drawing School, he became Simon Hollósy's in Nagybánya, following him to Técső, (though finally attending the private school of Ferenc Szablya- Frischauf). He went on a study tour of Italy in 1904 and became a teacher at the Applied Arts Drawing school in that same year. He took part in laying the foundations of KÉVE, organising its exhibitions abroad. He worked at Nagybánya in 1911 and 1912. He organised the artist colony of Miskolc in 1921 and, then, as a teacher at the Hungarian Academy of Fine Arts, led the colony. He taught at the Hungarian Academy of Fine Arts until 1945, and was a Rector of the institution for two years beginning in 1935.
