Biography from Williams American Art Galleries:
Charles E. Harsanyi was born in Tapolcza, Hungary in 1905.  He studied at the Royal Academy in Budapest, Hungary with A. Bankhard from 1923 to 1928. Nineteen years later, in 1947, Harsanyi moved to the U. S., settling in Jackson Heights, New York.

The painter and drawing specialist became a member of numerous prestigious art clubs including the Salmagundi Club, The Society of Independent Artists and the Allied Artists of America.  Harsanyi served as an awards director and chairman of admissions for the Audubon Artists Association during the 1950s.

Later in life after living in Stephentown, New York and Cape Coral, Florida, Harsanyi passed away in Fort Myers, Florida in 1973.
