Jacob Lanyi.

Education: Budapest, Vienna, Rome, Paris,


Married: Anna, d. of Joseph Herz, in Buda-
pest (Hungary), March 30, 1906; ch.: Mrs.
Georgianna Dietl, Lilli.

Prof. Record: Decorative work for Vajda-
Hunyad castle, 1896; facade modeler in
Rome; in 1902 started attracting attention
with portrait caricatures; originator of the
colored plastic caricatures and won wide
acclaim in all big cities of Europe; in 1903
was co-worker on the Hungarian Caricature
Magazine; works in marble and bronze pur-



chased by the museums of Beaux Arts,
War History and the Parliament m Buda-
pest- huge marble fountain Playing Amors
erected in Capitol; marble Leda at the Szech-
enyi Bath; Mother and Child at St. Gellert
Bath, and countless others standmg m all
parts of the country. His bronze of the
Prince of Wales, his portrayal of Kmg
George made for the coronation, his out-
standing children's portraits— his acclaimed
perfection of animals— all are to his credit.
Pre-eminent among caricaturists, there is
hardly an important figure in European
political life whom he has not caricuatured;
as a result of this extraordinary ability, in
1936 the Esquire and Coronet Magazines
brought him out to America. After six
months, thev sent him out to Calif, for a
vacation, vvhere he has been ever since
turning to that which is typical subject
matter here— the modeling of writers and
