Aurel Naray was Born in Budapest, Hungary in 1883; he was a self – educated artist and social critic.

He exhibited in the Nemzeti Szalon (National Salon) in 1921 and 1924, and later in America and throughout Europe.  In 1924, he traveled to the USA and exhibited extensively.

Naray’s themes include the portrayal of woman, children, idyllic folk life and imaginary landscapes, flowers (the petals having fireworks – like energy) and most notably, paintings of ecclesiastical subjects.

His works are included in the collection of the Hungarian National Gallery (Magyar Nemzeti Galéria)
