ENEY Evgeny Evgenievich (1890-1971, Leningrad), film designer, People’s Artist of the USSR in 1969. Studied at the Academy of Arts, Budapest, in 1910-14. Participated in the Civil War as a Hungarian Internationalist. Living in Petrograd from the early 1920s, he started working at Sevzapkino Film Studio in 1924, working regularly with directors G. M. Kozintsev and L. Z. Trauberg. He used the setting of St. Petersburg / Petrograd / Leningrad for The Devil's Will (1926), The Overcoat (1926), Little Brother (1927), Alone (1931), and Fragment of an Empire (1929), all directed by F. M. Ermler; as well as Pirogov (1947) and Belinsky (1953) directed by Kozintsev. In the first two parts of the Maxim Trilogy, shot in 1935-39, he created an expressive and true image of the pre-revolutionary worker's life on the outskirts of St. Petersburg. Though repressed, he resumed his professional work during the war. He worked together with Kozintsev in the shooting of Don Quixote in 1957, Hamlet in 1964, and King Lear in 1971, contributing an immense amount to the development of film design. He was awarded a Stalin Prize in 1948. He last lived in St. Petersburg at 12 Martynova Street, and was buried at Komarovskoe Cemetery.
