After early training at the Budapest School of Applied Arts begun in 1893, he went on to Munich, to study at Simon HollĂłsy's independent school. He spent summers in NagybĂˇnya, and also trained in Rome and Paris. It was due to one of his great experiences during his youth, critical realist literature of the Russians, that he started to study realism and life in the country. He wanted to create a special art with national character. He moved to HĂłdmezĹ‘vĂˇsĂˇrhely in 1905 and formed a strong friendship with JĂˇnos Tornyai. During the First World War he painted the life of refugees escaping the horrors of war, presenting the drama of escape. From 1922 he taught at the Hungarian Academy of Fine Arts for thirty years. In 1947 he organised an artist colony and school in Baja.
