Biography   Hugo Gellert


Hugo Gellert (May 3, 1892  – December 9, 1985) was a Hungarian-American illustrator and muralist. A committed radical, much of Gellert's work is agitational in nature and distinctive in style, considered by some art critics as among the best political work of the first half of the 20th century.

Hugo Gellert (Gellért Hugó in the Hungarian style) was born Hugo Grünbaum on May 3, 1892 in Budapest, Hungary. In 1906, the family emigrated to the United States, arriving in New York City, where they put down roots and changed their name.

Gellert studied at the Cooper Union and the National Academy of Design. His wife was named Livia.
