Margit Anna, born Margit Sichermann, (1913-1991) attended Vaszary's school from 1932-1936, and then traveled to Paris with her artist husband, Imre Ámos, in 1937. There they met Chagall, whose influence can be seen in her early work. Following the death of her husband in a Nazi concentration camp in 1944, her style became harsher & more elemental. She did not paint from 1949, until the mid-1960s.
