HORNYANSKY, Nicholas ARCA, ALC, CPE, CSGA, OSA (1896-1965). Born in Budapest, Hungary, Hornyansky studied portrait painting at the Budapest Academy of Fine Arts under Ballo; etching in Antwerp, Belgium (1919-1928); under Jean Porcaboeuf and Sagnelonge in Paris; and in Vienna and Munich. He came to Toronto in 1929 where he remained active until his death. His oil portraits and landscapes pre-date his time in Canada. He is best known for his coloured etchings and aquatints of the Ontario, Quebec and Maritime landscape, buildings and streetscapes. He also traveled west to Manitoba and British Columbia. He developed the unique single-pull positive-approach aquatint process, and also worked in watercolour, gouache and ink. Hornyansky taught printmaking at the OCA (1945-65) and was President of the CPE (1944-47). A member of many American art associations including the American Color Print Society, Philadelphia, he was also a Life Fellow of the International Institute of Arts and Letters. Hornyansky exhibited with the RCA between 1932-1961 and the AAM/MMFA between 1931-1960. A retrospective of his work was held at the TTAG in 1978. His work is represented in the collections of the LC, NGC, ROM and Museum of Fine Art in Antwerp. Biography courtesy of The Collector's Dictionary of Canadian Artists at Auction: Volume II: G-L
