One of seven children of a dismally poor Jewish family he was discovered as a prodigy, brought up and instructed in painting by László Mednyánszky. He later studied in Budapest and Paris, and traveled extensively throughout Western Europe.

Most of his works depict scenes of nature from his home region, the Szepes county in particular views of the Tatra Mountains and the area of Késmárk, which he considered his home town despite having spent much of his life in Budapest.

His works are on exhibit at the Hungarian National Gallery in Budapest, the Slovak National Gallery, the Eastern Slovak Gallery in Kassa and the Tatra Gallery in Poprad.
