Pór, Bertalan Bátaszék, 1880 - 1964, Budapest
The main stages in his training were the Pattern Drawing School of Budapest, the Academy in Munich and Simon Hollósy's private school in Munich, and the Julian Academy in Paris from 1901. Returning to Hungary, he joined the Circle of Hungarian Impressionists And Naturalists (MIÉNK) which had taken a stand against conservative art and then became one of The Eight. He prepared drawings of battlefields during the First World War, designed canvassing posters during the Hungarian Soviet Republic, in which he was active in directing artistic life. After its collapse, he went into exile, passing through Brassow, Vienna, Prague and Warsaw before settling in Berlin in the twenties. He lived in Paris between 1938 and 1948 and then visited Russia. On his return to Hungary, he was appointed teacher at the Hungarian Academy of Fine Arts.
