Kernstok, Károly Budapest, 1873 - 1940, Budapest
He studied at the Hungarian Academy of Applied Arts, the Hollósy circle in Munich from 1892, the Julian Academy in Paris for two years beginning 1894, and finally the Master School of Gyula Benczúr between 1896 and 1899. A founding member of MIÉNK, he also spent a substantial part of 1907 in Paris. He played an important part in the formation of The Eight group. He came into contact with the radical middle class circles in the 1910s, and published his writings regularly. He brought an independent school into existence in his own villa in Nyergesújfalu on the instructions of the state during the Hungarian Soviet Republic. After its collapse he lived in Berlin until 1925. He had a major influence on younger artists as a teacher as well.
