Hungarian Bathing Beauty: 1


This is the companion picture to Syrinx in my cloakroom: Fürdő nő (bathing woman) by Károly Lotz. I bought a nice reproduction of this, printed on canvas, at the National Gallery in Budapest.

Lotz (1833-1904), studied in Vienna and was mostly famous for his murals, many of which you can still see today in places like the Academy of Sciences, the Casino and the Parliament building in Budapest.

Most of his nudes, like this one, After the Bath (1880), were done earlier in his career but Fürdő nő was painted in 1901. A late but very welcome addition!
