Pal Fried Oil on Canvas, Circa 1950's - Anabella in Paris

About the Item

Fried Pal (1893-1976) Oil on Canvas. Titled on the verso “Anabella.” The painting is in excellent condition and is signed lower left. The image measures 24"h x 30'w. The frame measures 31 ½”h x 37"w. Pal Fried, (1893-1976), Hungarian American artist, was born in Budapest and studied at the Hungarian Academie under Professor Hugo Pohl and in Paris under Claude Monet and Lucien Simone. Under Pohl's influence, he executed many portraits, nudes and Oriental scenes in pastel. He was also greatly influenced by the French Impressionist School of Renoir and Degas. Fried's signature on his paintings was Fried Pal, last name first in the European manner. He is sometimes listed in auction catalogues and reference books erroneously under the letter "P". In Paris, Fried concentrated on portraiture in which he also became a recognized master. He exhibited his work in Muucsarnok in Budapest. In 1947, after WW II, he emigrated to America where he taught at the Academy of Arts in New York and developed his own unique style. In the 1950's and 60's, Pal Fried gained popularity while living and painting in Hollywood. He made the rounds and often painted high society women and celebrities including Marilyn Monroe and the Gabor sisters. In New York, he painted portraits of Herbert Lehman Governor and Senator from New York, Will Rogers and other notables. Fried, an artist of the Hungarian school, worked with pastels and oil paints. He was known for being an important figure painter, and most often depicted beautiful young women, nudes, ballerinas, Parisian society women, western scenes, horse racing, and an occasional seascape. His artwork has gained much deserved recognition and notoriety and has become highly collectible. Pal Fried died in New York City on March 6, 1976, at the age of 82.
