graphic artist, painter
Július Jakoby (born as Gyula Jakoby, Kassa, 28 March 1903 – Košice, 15 April 1985) was a Hungarian painter living in Košice, a prominent figure of Hungarian and Slovak modernist art.
His image is that of an loner, living on the fringe of society, struggling for survival at start. His work is deeply tied to the small town atmosphere of Košice and its people, whose macrocosm can be seen in most of his works. In formal terms his work reflects secessionist expressionism and symbolism of Konštantín Kövári-Kačmárik and the Hungarian symbolism of Károly Férenczy and József Rippl-Rónai.
