Antal Neogrady Hungarian—1861-1942; An artist of fine sentiment and imagination, Neogrady displayed a rare gift for investing his subjects with his own personal touch. Born in Galsa, Hungary, he passed through the Budapest Academy before continuing his art education in Munich. There, at the Academy of Art, he studied under Gabriel von Hackl, a genre painter, and Alex von Wagner, also a Hungarian, who painted historical genre and landscapes. Wagner, only twenty eight when he became a Professor, was able to instill in his pupil a directness of conception, a simpleness of subject that made his works easily understood. Neogrady eventually returned to Budapest as a painter and illustrator. Later he was appointed Professor of Watercolor Studies at the Budapest Academy, a post he held from 1893 until 1931.
Although there appears to be only one example of critical consideration of his work, it was an appreciative one. The International Studio of 1902 wrote: “Very popular with the public is Antal Neogrady, who chiefly affects the ‘gouache’ method, wherein he succeeds in obtaining the most striking effects.”Biography excerpted from the unpublished catalog by Edward P. Bentley for the Haussner Restaurant in Baltimore, Maryland, titled: Haussner’s, The Children.
