BERÉNY, RÓBERT (1887–1953), Hungarian painter and graphic designer. Born and educated in Budapest, Berény studied in Paris and Italy. On his return he joined the "Nyolcak," a progressive group of artists searching for new forms of pictorial expression. In 1948 he was appointed professor at the Academy of Creative Arts in Budapest. Berény's early work reflects the influence of Cézanne, while his later work is more expressionistic. He painted a wide variety of subjects, including life studies and landscapes. He was an outstanding graphic artist whose posters maintained a high standard. His Self-Portrait with Straw Hat (1906), The Lady Cellist (1929), The Scrawl (1933), Ice-Carrying (1937), and The Student Painter (1947) are in the Hungarian National Gallery. His portrait of Béla Bartók is in the Bartók Archives, New York. (Jeno Zsoldos)
