Joseph Herzceg


Joseph Herczeg was born in Szekszard, Hungary in 1958.

At the age of fourteen Herczeg attended Art School in Pecs. Despite his youth he achieved success in a very short period of time - - even before his studies were complete.

Herczeg’s teacher was Foth Erno from whom he learned graphics and model design. Romantic houses and towns always appealed to Mr. Herczeg, and he developed his talent towards this style.

Besides getting acquainted with general branches of Applied and Fine Arts at the Academy for Arts, he learned environmental planning. His diploma work in 1982 was a site plan of one of the most beautiful and decisive boulevards in Budapest.

Herczeg always looked toward Bonington, Cornelis Springer and the German master, Spitzweg for inspiration. As a European artist, he follows classic European styles in terms of topic, contents and workmanship.
