József Rippl-Rónai (1861 – 1927) was a Hungarian painter who first introduced modern artistic movements in the Hungarian art. In 1888 he met the members of Les Nabis and under their influence he painted his first important work, The Inn at Pont-Aven, a deeply felt work notable for its dark atmosphere. His painting My Grandmother was exhibited in the Salon du Champ-de-Mars in 1894. It was this picture that aroused the interest of the Nabis group (Bonnard, Denis, Vuillard) and of the group of young artists gathered around the magazine "Revue Blanche", who invited Rippl-Rónai to join their company. In 1890 he left Paris and returned to Hungary, setting in his home town, Kaposvár. Initially, he painted intimate interiors here then developed his characteristic "corn kernels" style, using bright colors and small brush-strokes which left the tiny patches of paint distinct.He became involved in the applied arts, too, designing glass windows, furniture, chinaware, glasses and goblins.
