This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Karoly Rokk's work is best known for his winter scenes taken from the Hungarian and Siberian winter.  Rokk was taken prisoner of war by the Russians during the First World War during which time he painted his Siberian winter scenes. 
 
Rokk could paint his scenes very quickly in an impressionist style.  Although most of his work is done in oils he also was very skillful in the use of water colours.  Indeed the family in New Zealand have a self portrait done in water colour done while Rokk was in Siberia.
 
Some time after the First World War ended Rokk was released, and together with his Siberian wife, returned to Hungary where he operated his architectural and construction business.  He continued painting into old age.
