Egri, Ted, 1913-

Ted Egri was born in New York City in 1913. While in the Navy, he worked drafting maps. During his service, Egri drew and painted extensively. Although he did not receive any formal academic degrees in the arts, he studied at art schools in New York City and New Mexico, and eventually became a successful sculptor. In 1950, Egri and his wife move to Taos, N.M. where he taught sculpture, life drawing, still life drawing, and painting, and was a Visiting Lecturer at the University of Wyoming in Laramie, University of Illinois in Urbana, and the State College of Iowa in Cedar Falls. He also taught various art workshops in Texas, New Mexico, and Kansas. As well as lecturing at the university level, Mr. Egri taught art classes to numerous art clubs and elementary school classes and participated in many seminars in the New Mexico region. He produced many commissioned pieces in California, New Mexico, Texas, Iowa, Colorado, and Pennsylvania. Pictures of his work have appeared in many publications about sculpture in general, and sculpture in the West.
