Oil painting -> List of Painters -> Victor Vasarely

     Vasarely was born in Pecs and grew up in Piestany (then Postyen) and Budapest where in 1925 he took up medical studies at Budapest University. In 1927 he abandoned medicine to learn traditional academic painting at the private Podolini-Volkmann Academy. In 1928/1929, he enrolled at Sandor Bortnyik's muhely (lit. "Workshop", in existence until 1938), then widely recognized as the center of Bauhaus studies in Budapest. Cash-strapped, the muhely could not offer all that the Bauhaus offered. Instead it concentrated on applied graphic art and typographical design.
