DESCRIPTION

Born in Hungary, Philip de László (1869-1937) was one of the most celebrated and successful portrait painters of his generation.  His many sitters included European royalty, aristocrats and society figures as well as members of his own family. This display focuses on some of de László’s finest paintings, notably his 1925 portrait of the Duchess of York (later Queen Elizabeth, The Queen Mother) and his compelling portrait of the 6th Duchess of Portland.
