Biography from ASKart:Albert Nemethy Sr (1920 - 1998) Albert Szatmar Nemethy, Sr. was active/lived in New York / Hungary. Albert Nemethy Sr is known for marine-ship portrait, and landscape painting.Biography Albert Nemethy, Sr.Biography from Roger King Fine ArtThe Nemethy family of New York has produced two generations of talented painters. Albert Szatmar Nemethy(1920-1998) was the first in a line of talented artists that includes his six children, Julian (b. 1948), Kristina, Georgina (b. 1950), Albert R., George, and Veronica. In 1950 Albert Sz. and his family escaped their native Hungary during the Communist takeover, traveling first to Austria and later settling in a German refugee camp. They emigrated to the United States, settling in Newburgh, New York, in the Hudson River Valley. There are frequent stylistic and compositional similarities in the family's paintings, often making it difficult to distinguish the artist. Albert Sz. is perhaps best known for ship portraits, but he also painted landscapes and in at least one case, a large civic mural. George, Julian, Albert R., and Georgina all paint marine works as well; the three former sometimes in the style of James Bard, while some of Georgina's works incorporate landscape features and harken to the Hudson River tradition. Their paintings are characterized by meticulous detail, bright color, and knowledge of the great marine painters of the 19th century.
