NAGY, Sándor
(1869, Németbánya - 1950, Gödöllő)

Painter and designer. He studied in Budapest, Rome and Paris. Together with Aladár Körösfői-Kriesch, he co-founded the art school in Gödöllő and was the leader of a carpet weaving firm in Gödöllő, too. Besides symbolic frescoes on religious subject matters, he was engaged in painting landscapes, doing copper engravings and glass-paintings, designing tapestries and illustrating books (his illustrations of Ady's poems are outstanding). In design, he applied folk art ornamentics, especially those of Kalotaszeg.
