Derkovits, Gyula Szombathely, 1894 - 1934, Budapest
First apprenticed to his father's carpentry shop, after demobilisation he attended the evening courses of the Applied Drawing School, before going on to the private school of Artúr Podolini Volkman and studying at the Independent School of Fine Arts in Haris Köz in the centre of Budapest. He was in Vienna in 1923, where his works were shown in a number of exhibitions. He also exhibited in Budapest after his return, when his mature style came into its own. This was when his home and street pictures were painted and the Dózsa series of wood engravings were made. His established a contact with the communist movement in 1926, breaking it off in 1930. He found working out an existence impossible, and this situation set the background for his masterworks.
