De Erdely


Francis De Erdely was a noted Los Angeles, California artist who was a figure and genre painter and draughtsman. He was born in Hungary, studied at the Royal Academy of Art in Budapest and the Sorbonne and the l'Ecole de Louvre in Paris. He left Europe, and the ravages of World War II, in 1939 and settled in California. De Erdely was strongly influenced by his Academic training as well as by his experiences both during the War and as an immigrant in the United States. His paintings and drawings typically feature immigrants, working class people, and minorities. They invariably show extraordinary technical expertise. Francis De Erdely's work is found in numerous museums, including the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the De Young Museum, the Pasadena Art Institute, and the Seattle Art Museum. De Erdely taught at the University of Southern California for many years.
