For anyone interested in the landscapes of De Laszlo, see Derek Clifford’s The Paintings of P.A. de Laszlo, 1969, Literary Services & Production Ltd. His book contains a great deal of information about the artist and in particular de Laszlo’s landscapes, 16 of which are shown in full color inserts.

It is interesting to note that de Laszlo’s last exhibition, shown in aid of the Artists’ General Benevolent Institution, opened on the day of his death and featured 24 landscapes (of 60 works shown).

In these works, de Laszlo painted for no one but himself. But he was (justly) proud of these paintings. It is interesting to think that had de Laszlo lived but another decade, he might well have given up portraiture and today been remembered as a great landscape artist.
