Laszlo Neogrady

Laszlo Neogrady
Hungarian landscape painter

Laszlo Neogrady was born in Budapest, Hungary in 1896. He was the son of the artist Anatal Neogrady, and he studied painting at the Hungarian Academy of Fine Arts. He became an art teacher, specializing in watercolor techniques. Beginning in 1922, Neogrady exhibited his work at the Hungarian Art Gallery. He specialized in painting naturalistic landscapes, many of which depicted forest scenes in the snow. Laszlo typically creates dramatic lighting in order to make his landscapes atmospheric. He died in August of 1962.

Ben Nicholson

Ben Nicholson
British abstract painter, landscape and still-life

Ben Nicholson was born on April 10, 1894 in Denham, Buckinghamshire, England. He came from a family filled with artists and architects. He trained as an artist in London at the Slade School of Fine Art from 1910-1914. Nicholsonís first exhibition of figurative works was in London in 1922. Following that show, his work began to be influenced by synthetic cubism, and later by the primitive style of Rousseau. On several visits to Paris, he met Mondrian, whose work in the neoplastic style was to influence him towards abstraction. Nicholsonís personal style is a combination of his abstract influence of Mondrian and of his cubist influence of Picasso. In 1933 he made his first wood relief, which contained only right angles and circles. He died in February of 1982.

Frances Roberts Nugent

For forty years, she taught at San Fernando State College and was a popular lecturer. Frances Nugent is a listed artist in Davenports Art Reference Guide as well as in major art and auction databases. However, because there is no current gallery representation for this artist the stated value is based on extrapolation from past auction sales.
