Gustave Miklos (1888-1967), French / Hungarian

Born in Budapest 1888, died in Oyonnax 1967. He studied at the Decorative Arts School in Budapest. In 1909 Miklos settled in Paris. He became a naturalized French citizen and made acquaintances with renown Hungarian/French sculptor Josephy Csaky. In Paris, he frequented the Cubist exhibitions. He designed beautiful jewelry enamels, silver and carpets and soon became an important Art Deco designer. His work was prominently displayed at the International Exposition dedicated to Art and Technology in Modern Life, held in 1937 in Paris. From 1940 onward, Miklos divided his time between sculpture, interior design and teaching.

Gustave Miklos joined the French Army in 1914 at the outbreak of World War I. Serving in the battalion d’Orient, he was posted to Salonica. Here he discovered Byzantine art, a revelation that proved a major influence in his aesthetic development.

About Me

Vlatko potpis s

This lexicon is a result of my 15 years long period of researching & documenting the personalities and the artworks of the foreign painters, sculptors, illustrators, and photographers having visited different spots of the geographic territory of Macedonia, there having created works of art there over a 100-years long period i.e. between 1850-1950. Their presence and artwork in the Macedonian milieus represent a notable cultural heritage to the international linkage of the ethnic Macedonians as well as to all the ethnicities living in the picturesque territory of Macedonia and the cultures of modern-day countries spread over parts of the geographic territory of Macedonia. Witnessing the artistic contributions of the foreign artist, we are proud of their Macedonia-themed creative works and experiences. I believe that their artworks, having been inspired and created over the vast region of Macedonia, unite us all in these challenging times, and under the facts and the values of the artistic beauty.
