Philip Alexius de Laszlo (1869 Р1937) He was born in Budapest and studied there in the School of Arts and Crafts and the National Academy of Art. From there he went to Munich, to study at the Royal Bavarian Academy of art, and on to Paris, where he attended the Acad̩mie Julian in 1890 and 1891. He exhibited his work widely and came to England in 1907 and took British citizenship in 1914, but was interned during the war anyway. He was best known for his portraits, one of which was singled out by Anthony Ludovici in as He painted many of the aristocratic and famous people of his day.
