József Pécsi, 1889-1956

József Pécsi, 1889-1956. "...He was a photographer, an artist, owner of the Golden Diploma title, a specialist, a teacher and collector, and one of the best in each area. Without his work and individuality the history of Hungarian photography would be incomplete. Whatever he touched turned to gold in his hands. His pictorial portraits, landscapes, fashion and advertisement photographs which incorporate the results of the Neue Sachlichkeit, still life's, avant-garde nudes, and portraits done with a new pictorial approach have all proven to stand the test of time, and in many cases even created schools of style. His interesting facial features have inspired many painters."
