Francois GALL (1912-1987)
Francois Gall, Hungarian by birth, became an impressionist painter in the pure French tradition after he moved to Paris in 1936. He was born in Kolozsvar in the former region of Transylvania on March 22, 1912 . He began studied all media at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Rome while working in menial jobs to secure a living. Support came in 1939 when the Hungarian government awarded Gall with a scholarship.

Six years later, Francois Gall established himself in Paris and became a student of Devambez at the National Academy of Fine Arts. Francois Gall greatly admired the first generation impressionist and adopted their concepts for his own interpretations. Parisian scenes and portrayals of women engaged in typically feminine activities were among his preferred subjects. Fancois Gall is a modern impressionist, bringing to this most enduring style, his own unique personality.
The artist participated in various Salon exhibitions in Paris and became a favorite with the public. In 1963, he was honored with the Francis Smith Prize. He died in 1987.
