Francois Gall (1912-1987) was a Hungarian / French artist who while living in Romania joined a group of other talented artists studying & working in the ‘plein air’ style known there as the Baia Mare School; a style strongly influenced by and very similar to that of the French Barbizon School.


Gall moved to Italy in 1929 where he attended The Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Rome, he then later travelled to France in 1936 where he studied under Andre Devambez at The Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Paris.                                                                                                                                 


In 1947 he was awarded the Gold Medal at the Paris Salon for his work titled ‘Bread for the People’, then in 1976 he received the prestigious Chevalier dans ‘Ordre des Arts de Lettres, which is the highest recognition awarded to a French artist. In 1987 he was elected President of the National Union of Painters & Professional Sculptors. Francois Gall is represented in the permanent collections of several prominent European & North American Museums.
