Painter, Etcher, Illustrator, Wall painter, b. 1884 - d. 1955

Artist Louis Jambor's talents began to shine at an early age, and after studying at the Royal Academy of Art in Budapest, he moved to the United States in 1922. Louis Jambor's paintings often portrayed religious images, as he was well known for his decorative murals in various churches and buildings in Hungary and America — his two main places of residence.
