Lot Notes
Nagy Oszkár studied painting with Károly Ferenczy  at the  Academy of Fine Arts, Budapest  and with István Réti, the founder of  Society of Plastic Artists from Baia Mare.  After his one year scholarship in Italy he  returned  to Baia Mare where he soon developed  his artistic style. He painted mostly landscapes from Baia Mare and portraits.  Althought unique, his art cand be traced to Paul Cézanne landscapes and German Expressionism. He exhibited in 1922 at Satu Mare,   in 1936, at Carlton Hotel, Timisoara,  in 1942 at University Library, Cluj-Napoca  and in 1944 at Széchenyi Square Kiosk, Oradea. Nagy Oszkár founded the artists colony in Baia Sprie (Felsőbánya)  which was intended  to be the rival of the Baia Mare (Nagybánya) colony. 
Due to the facts that  he worked   remote in Baia Mare, Baia Sprie and never exhibited his paintings in major cities he unfortunately  did not  achieved a fame in Europe.
