Today's post presents some of the portraits he made before he was 40 years old, so his skills were fairly mature but perhaps not fully formed. Pre-1899 works were not evident in a Google search, though I surely must have missed some. Those paintings were made when he lived in Budapest.
This might have been a study for a larger, more formal painting.
But this time, László's style is beginning to approach maturity.
Signed, but not "finished."
Again, more a study than a completed work. I'm assuming the Kaiser sat for this.
