Biography from Estate Art Shop:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Arnold Gross was born in 1929 in Torda, Romania from where, in 1947, he fled to Hungary. He began studying at a young age at the Superior School of Beautiful Arts. Major influences upon him artistically were his teachers Hincz, Kadar, Konecsni, and Koffan and his friends Bela Kondor and Vladimir Szabo.

Following the lead of his father, Karoly Gross, who was a painter and professor of drawing in Transilvania, Arnold Gross began his professional career using watercolors. In the 1950s, he developed a personal style as a graphic artist, and he is now known for his in-depth and detailed copper engravings. They mimic the Old Master artists including Rembrandt.

Gross’s engravings suggest that which is dreamlike and surreal, especially cities and their inhabitants whose imaginative worlds are created from fragments of reality and are filled with fairies and fantasies. He uses vibrant colors of the rainbow to convey tranquility and harmony and also manages to suggest bizarre circumstances without using deformed or distorted figures. In other words, his depictions are meant to be everything they seem to be: a tree is a tree; a garden is a garden, and there is compact composition and the inner coherence.

Intended to evoke warm feelings, his engravings fall into several subject categories: urban landscapes, trees, flowers, gardens and landscapes. He also does miniatures that portray love, friendship, human culture and nature.
