Welcome to our website
The de Laszlo Archive Trust was set up to research, catalogue and administer the paintings and archive of Philip Alexius de László. This is the first time an authoritative assessment of Philip de László’s oeuvre has been made available online and it is hoped that it will prove to be a valuable resource for all those interested in the artist and his era.
The catalogue raisonné is a work in progress and the website is continually updated with new entries.

Self-Portrait, 1911, oil on canvas, Uffizi Gallery Florence The Viscountess Castlereagh, née the Hon. Edith Chaplin, 1913, oil on canvas, private collection
Painted at the request of the Italian government for the Uffizi Gallery in Florence. It was an immense honour for de László to be invited to add his painting to the ‘Gallery of Immortals’ in the Vasari corridor, in which hang the self-portraits of the greatest artists since the Renaissance, including Titian, Rubens, Van Dyck, Vélasquez, Reynolds, Ingres and Sargent.
The Londonderry family were among de László’s greatest patrons and this portrait was intended to hang at Londonderry House surrounded by paintings by Reynolds, Gainsborough and Lawrence. As such her pose, dress and setting in the landscape are all reminiscent of 18th century English Grand Manner portraiture.
Two Sikh Officers, Rasaldar Jagat Singh and Rasaidar Man Singh , 1916
These sitters were both officers serving with the Indian Cavalry in France in 1916. They had visited the artist’s studio to see his portrait of an Indian prince and de László painted them for his own pleasure. The work remained in his collection until his death.
