We celebrate our gallery's 60th anniversary with a special programme. This exhibition is the first of graphical exhibition series, which presents each month a different graphical artist.
Gyula Hincz studied from 1922-1929 at the Academy of Fine Arts in Budapest by Gyula Rudnay and János Vaszary. Between 1924-1926 he attended the graphical class from Viktor Olgyai and went to Paris in 1926. In 1928 he went on an educational journey to Berlin, where he met Herwarth Walden. He was a teacher at the Academy of Applied Arts (1946-1949) and became the director of the Academy of Fine Arts (1949-1963).
Beside his paintings, he also worked on mural works, mosaics and tapestries. Additionally to his graphical works, also his book illustrations should be mentioned. In 1970, he participated at the Venice Biennale.
