Around 1930, signed Ocean candy metal box designed by Róbert Berény. Very, very rare, Róbert Berény was one of the most famous advertising graphic artists and painters of the time in Hungary.

He started painting as a child, then studied first at the Model Drawing School in Budapest, and then at the Julian Academy in Paris. After returning home, he became a member of the most important group of artists of Hungarian modernism, the Eight. During the Hungarian Soviet Republic, in 1919, he assumed a public role and designed the iconic poster of the era ("To arms! To arms!"). After the fall of the Hungarian Soviet Republic, he emigrated to Berlin and stopped painting for a while. In the mid-thirties, he started creating again: with a new style, he became a representative of the Post-Nagybánya group. He expressed his lyrical imagery with subtle, eclectic colors, and painted self-portraits with a meditative, gloomy mood. Outstanding graphic works were created for his late period.
