In some biographies erroneously listed as Geza Kovesdy, the artist’s name is actually Geza Kovesky. A Hungarian artist working in the years after World War One, Kovesky painted a variety of subjects. Landscapes are commonly found amongst his oeuvre but is was as a painter of figures, particularly women, that he excelled. Some of these compositions appear to have been commissioned portraits but others depict models in very Art Deco settings.
This prime example of his work dates to around 1930 and shows his skills as a painter of the female form.
