Painter of genre scenes, animals, landscapes, beaches, harbors (Zeeland, The Netherlands), flowers, portraits and figures; draftsman and watercolorist.

The work of Moricz Góth is that of a cosmopolitan. Born in Hungary as the son of a wealthy landowner, he studied at the Academies of Budapest, Munich, Vienna, Paris (the Académie Julian) and Bruges (with Frans Courtens). In 1913 he traveled to the United States and to De Panne in Belgium, where he stayed with his family in 1914. At the beginning of the war he fled to the neutral Netherlands and ended up in Middelburg. There he met Jan Toorop. Domburg would become the permanent residence of the painter and his family for the next 15 years. Góth later settled in Veere and died in Amsterdam in 1944.

From 1908 on he exhibited in Budapest and also several times in Vienna, Munich (Glaspalast), Berlin, Amsterdam and San Francisco (1915).

Goth painted, drew and watercolored, among other things, beaches, harbors (Zeeland, The Netherlands), flowers, portraits, figures and landscapes in an impressionist style, although later often with a luministic and expressionistic touch.
