Biography

Miltiades Manno was a 1912 Olympian in rowing, becoming one of the few athletes who also took part in the art competitions. He came from a family of Greek immigrants and was successful in many sports, including swimming, cycling, football, rowing, and speed skating. In football, he was the top scorer of the Budapesti TC, who won the first two Hungarian Championships in 1901 and 1902, and Manno twice played in friendlies with the national team. In speed skating, Manno placed in the top three at the 1903 and 1905 European Championships and the 1903 World Championships. In rowing, he won a total of 11 national championships and also achieved international success, particularly in the singles.

After graduating from the Academy of Fine Arts in München in 1907, Manno became a graphic artist, painter and sculptor, but he was also known as a caricaturist and portrait painter. In World War I, he was wounded several times while fighting in Galicia and subsequently had to retire from sports. As a civilian, he returned to the Galician theatre and depicted the battlefield in numerous pictures, which he later used to create sculptures showing horse attacks, some of which are still offered at auctions. Sport continued to be one of his favorite topics. In 1928 he designed the Turul bird emblem for the football department of the Ferencvaros TC. Manno competed in Los Angeles with a total of 27 works in the categories of painting (10), drawings and watercolors (7) and sculpture (10).

After the end of the short-lived Hungarian Republic of Councils in 1920, Manno supported the autocratic Hungarian Regent Miklós Horthy. Until his death in 1935, Manno also supported the spread of European anti-Semitism. Because of this, after World War II, a veil of silence was drawn over his life.
