Moskowitz) was born in Budapest in 1885. She became one of the most prominent Hungarian poets of the 20th century, as well as a celebrated painter, graphic artist and designer. She was a key figure in the Hungarian avant-garde, a member of the art movement "The Eight" (A Nyolcak). Her painting and embroideries drew much of their inspiration from Hungarian folklore and folk art. In 1939 she emigrated to the United States where she continued her work in art education and opened her own school of painting. She died in New York City in 1966. (This work is printed by the Kner Publishing House as a series of three children's books in the same format, of which one is "Testvérorszâg" by Béla Balâzs).
