Szőnyi, István Újpest, 1894 - 1960, Zebegény
He attended the independent school of the Hungarian Academy of Fine Arts from 1911, and enrolled in the art-teachers training school for 1913 and 1914. He became the pupil of Ferenczy in the independent school of Nagybánya in 1914, and joined his class in the Hungarian Academy of Fine Arts as well. For participation in the events of the Hungarian Soviet Republic and belonging to the group of students urging reforms at the Academy, he was expelled in 1920. He moved to Zebegény in 1924, participated in the 1rst exhibition of the newly formed KUT, and taught at the Independent School of the City Centre. He received the state grant to Rome in 1928, when it had just been established, and became a teacher at the Hungarian Academy of Fine Arts in 1937. During the thirties he took part in artistic life as a member of the Gresham circle. He had a number of monumental commissions, and he published a treatise on drawing and painting techniques. A memorial museum dedicated to him opened in Zebegény in 1967.
