Endre Komaromi Kacz   Hungarian   1880 - 1969

Born in Komarom, Hungary, Kacz was initially a pupil of Eduard Ballo, a specialist in portraits and genre, at the National Academy in Budapest.  He continued his studies under Simon Hollosy, a genre painter who established a private school in Munich, Germany, and Nagylonya, Hungary.  The artist traveled in Belgium and Holland for a year, after which he returned to Budapest to attend the School of the Masters under Gyula Benczur for four years.

Kacz began exhibiting in 1901, establishing himself as a painter of portraits and genre studies - usually interiors with figures.  Many of these works displayed sympathy and understanding with children engaged in the simple pleasures a child most dearly loves.

In 1918 the artist held a one-man show at the National Salon in Budapest and in 1924 at the Palace of Exhibitions.  Kacz was awarded many prizes and medals and several of his works were purchased by the Hungarian National Gallery.
