Philip de László: An Anniversary Celebration


Duke of York Square, Chelsea

"Has any one painter ever before painted so many interesting and historical personages?" Lord

Selborne. BADA returns to Duke of York Square from 20-26 March, and is proud to be working with

The de Laszlo Archive Trust will present one of the highlights of BADA 2019, the loan exhibition Philip de László: An Anniversary Celebration. De László was one of the most famous artists in the world in the late 19th and early 20th centuries and is today celebrated as one of the last proponents of Grand Manner portraiture. His remarkable client list included many members of the royal and aristocratic houses of Europe, two Popes, four U.S. Presidents, and leading figures in politics, religion, society and industry. By the end of his life de László had been awarded 22 orders and 17 medals of merit by his royal sitters. Philip de László (1869-1937) was born Fülöp Laub, the eldest son of Adolf and Johanna Laub, a Budapest tailor and seamstress. He took the Hungarian name László, as a patriotic act in 1891, and was ennobled by Emperor Franz Joseph in 1912. His talent won him a scholarship to the Hungarian National Academy of Art, and he furthered his studies in Munich and Paris.His reputation grew steadily throughout the 1890s and in 1900 his portrait of Pope Leo XIII earned him a Grand Gold Medal at the Paris International Exhibition. .

To celebrate the 150th anniversary of de László’s birth, the exhibition at BADA 2019 will offer a selection of masterpieces of the artist’s oeuvre, all rarely seen paintings sourced from private collections. These include commissioned portraits which established de László’s unparalleled reputation, intimate portraits of family and friends, and examples of landscapes he painted for pleasure in his later years.
