Miksa Róth (26 December 1865 – 14 June 1944) was a Hungarian mosaicist and stained glass artist responsible for making mosaic and stained glass prominent art forms in Hungarian art.[1][2] In part, Róth was inspired by the work of Pre-Raphaelite artists Edward Burne-Jones and William Morris.[2]

Róth apprenticed at his father, Zsigmond Róth's leaded stained glass studio.[3] Starting a business in 1885, he would make commissions for a number of buildings, largely in Budapest, including the Hungarian Parliament Building and the Buda Castle.[1] Róth also received a number of commissions outside the country as well, for example the National Theatre of Mexico.[1]
