Studio (portrait) correspondence 1891-1937 (46 folders)

Back to online index and preliminary list

De László's studio (or portrait) correspondence contains letters, postcards and telegrams concerning portrait commissions, the majority of it being with the sitter or other members of their family.  In some cases, later more personal correspondence with former sitters is also included.  The artist specialised in making studies in oil at a single sitting.  The business of his studio was therefore brisk, as is reflected both in his output and the extent of his studio correspondence. 

Studio correspondence was filed alphabetically by the subject of the portrait.  There were two sequences: an initial sequence of portraits painted up to 1920; and a much more extensive sequence including correspondence across the whole of de László's career.
