János Apátfalvi Czene (1904-1984)

Born in Budapest October 24, 1904, his art training began at the Hungarian Royal Academy of Fine Art under noted Hungarian painters Gyula Rudnay, Károly Lyka, Zsigmond Kisfaludi Strobl and István Csók.  His first exhibition in 1926 was eventually followed by more than 60 exhibitions over the next 25 years, of which 8 were solo shows.  In 1938 he participated in the Venice Biennial where he attracted popular appreciation of his work.  He received a two-year grant to study in Italy at the Collegium Hungaricum in Rome during which time he also studied in Naples and Venice. 

Although he was acknowledged by his colleagues, his conservatism and lack of enthusiasm for modern art afforded him less and less recognition.  His work is characterized by exacting execution, clarity of subjects and sumptuous chromatics and is best described as taking the direction of New Classicism (based on the Italian term "novecento").

He passed on November 23, 1984, his work having long since become passé.  Long after his death, the Hungarian National Gallery acquired one of his painting titled Picnic for the New Hungarian Picture Gallery.
