Berény, Róbert 1887 - 1953
After his first year of study at the Pattern Drawing School in 1904, he went to Paris, and joined the Julian Academy as a pupil of Jean Paul Laurens. He went to Italy in the company of Bertalan Pór in 1907. On his return to Hungary, he joined The Eight in 1911. Berény had a wide range of interests: he learned music, and was close to composers such as Leo Weiner and Béla Bartók, whose portraits he painted. He opened a school of painting in Budapest after the First World War. He prepared recruiting posters during the Socialist Republic of 1919 and accepted a role in the direction of artistic life. After the collapse of the Socialist Republic, he went into exile in Vienna and then to Berlin, where he worked as a composer. He returned to Hungary in 1926 where he continued to design posters and paint. He opened an independent summer school in his villa in Zebegény in 1937, and taught at the Academy of Fine Arts from 1948.
