Pituk, József V.



József „Victorian” Pituk - in the 1960s for his wife's request he took the „Victorian” nickname on as a second name – was born in 1906 in Selmecbánya (city in Slovakia). He studied at the Hungarian College of Fine Arts between 1928 and 1932, where Oszkár Glatz was his teacher. From 1936 till 1938 he lived in Vienna, than between 1963-65 in Austria. In 1975 he was awarded by the Grand Prix in Milan.

He was a versatile artist, he created graphics, prepared illustrations, he designed and built glass windows, but the most important area his art works was the painting. In his works the life images, landscapes and historical compositions got central importance. His art can be grouped to the post-impressionist line. With his monumental glass painting of the temples he occupies a prominent position in our art history.
