Miklos Barabas was a pupil of J. Ender in Vienna in 1829. After returning to Kolozsvár in 1830, he learned lithography from Gábor Barra & produced lithographs of particularly high artistic standard all through his life. After spending 2 years in Bucuresti from 1831, he became a fashionable portrait painter. He toured in Italy during 1834-1835. Upon his return to Hungary, he helped establish the Art Society in 1859, of which he was the President from 1862, until his death. In 1867, he became a Member of Parliament of Pest in 1867. His "Authobiography" is a lively document of his own life & activites and of social & cultural conditions of his time.
