Bíró, Mihály 1886 - 1948
A student of Antal Lorántfi and István Groh at the School of Applied Arts between the years 1903 and 1907. From 1908 he studied in Berlin, Paris and London on a Ministerial scholarship. He won first prize in the poster competition of the journal The Studio. After his return from England he first worked as a sculptor and prepared designs for posters. He garnered his first reel success with a poster for the newspaper Népszava. He also designed costumes and stage sets for the Új Színház [New Theatre]. He went into exile to Vienna after the fall of the Hungarian Soviet Republic, publishing his Horthy-album there. He settled in Berlin but had to take refuge from the growing threat of Nazism first in Vienna in 1933, and then in Pozsony (Bratislava). From 1938 onwards he lived in Paris, returning to Hungary in poor health in 1947.
