Maurice Vagh-Weinmann is a Hungarian painter, engraver, illustrator, and lithographer born on August 20, 1899 in Budapest. He paints in an expressionist style and belongs to the first school of Paris.
As one of ten siblings, Maurice embraces a career in painting just like two of his brothers. Maurice paints in Paris with his brothers Nandor and Elemer.Upon arriving in France, he changes his Hungarian name Mihaly to Maurice. He paints with a determined touch, using bold colors in a lighter tone than his two brothers. His works often reference Hungarian themes such as landscapes and peasants in traditional costumes. He is the uncle of painter André Vagh-Weinmann, born in 1925.
His grandson, Alain Vagh, born in 1948, is a talented ceramist. Maurice passes away in 1986.
