Pál Gerzson was born in January 25, 1931 in Hird. His family moved a lot, so he attended school in Nagykároly, Ungvár and finally in Kőszeg. After his final exams, he studied at the Hungarian Academy of Fine Arts, where he graduated in 1953. In the same year, he became a member of the Studio for Young Artists.
At the beginning of his career, he has repeatedly been working at the artists camp in Hódmezővásárhely and in Szigliget. Since 1954, he regularly hold exhibitions. His first individual exhibition was in 1967. Since 1955 he was a member of the Art Foundation. From the beginning of the 1970s, he went on several educational trips to Europe, India and Japan. Between 1960-1974 he has been teaching at the Hungarian Academy for Applied Arts. Since 1964, he became a member of the Hungarian Association of Fine Artists. Between 1974-1996 he has been teaching at the Hungarian Academy for Fine Arts. Since 1992, he was a member of the Hungarian Academy of Arts. From 1992-1999, he was chairman of the Hungarian Association of Fine and Applied Arts.
During his career, he tried different kinds of techniques: tapestry, wood intarsia and graphics. In the 1950, he was mainly interested with the problematic representation of light and air. At the end of the 1950s, he definitely left behind the realistic-naturalistic representations and turned towards compositions based on geometrical figurativity. His works can be seen at the Hungarian National Gallery, the Modern Hungarian Gallery in Pécs as well as at the István Király Museum in Székesfehérvár.
