Andre Szenes Dugo (1895 - 1957)
    
Andre Szenes Dugo was born Andras Szenes in Szolnok, Hungary and studied architecture at the College of Technology in Budapest.  He served in the Hungarian Army during World War One and received his degree after the war.  Thereafter he studied painting with Adolf Fenyes (1867-1945) in Budapest and at the Art Colony of Szolnok. 

After his first exhibition in 1924, he moved to Munich where he also began exhibiting while furthering his studies and becoming familiar with works of the Expressionists.  During this time he kept exhibiting in Budapest.  In 1927 he was a recipient of the KUT* Prize.

By the mid thirties he left the increasingly uncomfortable political climate of Germany for Paris.  During his years in Paris he is influenced by Fauvism and Matisse. 

In 1939 he emigrated to New York where he worked as an illustrator, caricaturist and author of children’s books.  His work appeared in Vanity Fair, Harper’s Bazaar, Mademoiselle and Charm.  In addition to his magazine contributions, he illustrated the National Tuberculosis Christmas Seals for 1943 and 1950.
