Having set out for Vienna to become an engineer at first, in 1851 he transferred to the Academy, and then attended the independent school of Waldmüller. He went to Dresden in 1859, and then trained himself in Munich. He visited Berlin, France, Holland, Germany, Italy and London. He was appointed first teacher of the re-established Apprentice School of Decorative Arts in 1870, and then its director in 1903. He became the leader of the Master School from 1905. From 1860 onwards he was continually given commissions for the plan and execution of murals (such as the National Museum of Bavaria, certain parts of the interior decoration of the Hungarian Opera House, the Cathedral of Pécs and the Town House of Kecskemét). His art theoretical and pedagogic works form the backbone of a wealth of manuscripts left in his estate. A memorial museum dedicated to him opened in Szada, where he spent his summers.
