Emeric Fejes, 1904–1969, was a Croatian (Yugoslavian) painter who painted in a primitive or naive style. He's most famous for paintings of world landmarks in which he added colors of his own choosing. My family owned a few dozen Fejes paintings at one point, we have less than a half dozen all together at this point and I'm trying to reassemble them. Have one to sell?Comment on the blog and tell me.

This painting of Venice by Fejes was bought from him by my parents in the mid 60s. I'm not sure if they held onto the canvas or not.
Its typical of Fejes with the bright fantasy colors. Also, he often had a lot of trouble with perspective and 3D.
Emerik Fejes never traveled, he copied the great tourist sites from postcards that he collected.
