Vincent Korda (1897-1979)

Hungarian painter Vincent Korda was born is the outskirts of Turkeve in Hungary. He studied to be a painter, starting as a student at the Academy of Art in Budapest and graduating through the Academies of Vienna, Florence and Paris. From 1913 on he studied scenery painting under Jenő Kéméndy, was a pupil of the School of Applied Arts from 1914 to 1915, while being taught by József Rippl-Rónai, Béla Iványi Grünwald and Károly Kernstok. From 1918 to 1920 he was a pupil of István Réti, then continued his studies in Vienna. He went on a study trip in Italy in 1920-1921, worked at the artists colony of Kecskemét in 1919 and at the artists colony of Nagybánya between 1922 and 1924. In 1925 he moved to Paris before finally settling down in London in 1931 He showed great promise and would have probably become a very great painter had he not been engulfed in the works of his famous brothers. Internationally recognized as superior filmmakers, the Korda brothers, Alexander, Zoltán and Vincent made an indelible mark on the film industries in their native Hungary, as well as in Austria, Germany, the U.S., France and, especially, Great Britain. Vincent served as art director on many of his brothers' films, winning an Oscar for the sets of The Thief of Bagdad (1940), which was produced by Alexander.
