Louis Mark – Artist Distinguished in Hungary AND in America

In this 150th anniversary of his birth, and the 75th anniversary of his death, we remember the painter Louis Mark (Márk Lajos) who was honored as an outstanding artist both in his homeland and in the US. 

Perhaps best known for his portraits of women, Mark captured the shimmering colors of turn of the 19th century women’s dresses and the intriguing movements of the female body.  He was born in Retteg, Transylvania, on August 25th, 1867, and died in New York on March 18th, 1942.
