Jenő, György Remsey was born in 1885 in Nagykőrös. Between 1905 and 1909 he studied at the School of Industrial Design. In 1910 the Hors Conours Certificate was given to him, and in 1945 he got the Benczúr-award. In 1977 he was elected honorary citizen of Gödöllő, where he was living between the age of 24 until his death in 1980.
The higly versatile artist painted portrait, murals and historical images as a painter, he produced etchings, sculptures, and he won a statuary tender as well. He designed carpets, tapestries and stained-glass windows. His writer’s work is also important, he was writing poetries and dramas and plays. The George Martinuzzi drama- wich was written by Remsey- put on the National Theatre in 1942. In 1924 he founded the Federation of Spiritual Artists, and established the literate- and ideology journal, the Torch in 1932.
In the first time Joseph Rippl-Rónai had an effect on his works, but later the biblical and folklore stories were significant on his paintings and on his tapestries. His style stem from art nouveau with expressionism, the characteristic based on pathetic tone and grotesque imagery.
