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.

Lexicon of World's Naive Painters by Anatole Jakovsky, 1976
This photocopy from a Lexicon published in 1976 has Emeric Fejes' bio and expositions.
Notice that it spells Emeric's first name with a C, not a K. There seems to be some disagreement about this.
