As a result of the Treaty of Trianon after Worldwar I the artists colony of Nagybánya was no longer part of Hungary. Tibor Boromisza and others discovered Szentendre to be more than a substitute. The artist's colony was founded in 1926. In 1929 the artists moved to a house at Deák ference Street, which became the main place for the artists for a long period.
In 1969 a new artists colonie was founded by the Hungarian state.
In the forest of Fontainebleau near Paris the first artists’ colony came into being. From the 1830’s on, Barbizon attracted artists who were rebelling against the rules of the academy and longed for a ‘good and simple’ life, such as the Naturalists Théodore Rousseau, Constant Troyon and the Realists Jean-François Millet and Camille Corot.
In the 1850's, Katwijk was home to the painter Jozef Israels. However, the artists' colony did not reach its peak until 1880, which lasted until 1910. The hard, unspoiled and intensive fishermen's life was a great source of inspiration from artists from all over the world. After the period of Romanticism, most painters applied a realistic or naturalistic style until a new generation stood up and brought a trace of Modernism to the village.
In 1908, after a journey through Europe and North Africa, the artists Gabriele Münter and Wassily Kandinsky, members of the first modernistic association, the Neue Künstlervereinigung München (NKVM), first came to Murnau a. Staffelsee, together with Marianne von Werefkin and Alexej Jawlensky. They enjoyed their stay and felt inspired by the beautiful landscape.
