Imre Amos










Biography:
Imre Amos 1907 Nagykallo - 1944/45 Germany. Painter. Following his studies at the Technical University, Budapest from 1927 to 1929, he enrolled in the Art School where he was a pupil of Gyula Rudnay. He married Margit Anna, a painter. In 1936, he was elected to be a member of the New Society of Artists, from which time onwards he spent his summers in Szentendre and worked there. He visited Paris in 1937 where he met Chagall. Ámos became a member of the National Salon in 1938.
In 1940 he was taken to labour camp in Vojvodina, then to the battle field in the east, and in 1944 he was deported to Germany, where he died, probably in a concentration camp in Saxony. His painting was first influenced by József Rippl-Rónai and Róbert Berény. From the mid-1930s onwards, a dreamlike associative portrayal was typical of his pictures as a result of Chagall's influence ("The Old Church Servant Thinks of Heaven", "Dream of Bear Leader", etc.). During World War II he reported about his tragic experiences in shocking visions ("A Series of Dark Times", "Escaping", "War", etc.).
