From the Lazlo Archive:

"By 1903, de László had painted many members of the Hungarian aristocracy and had secured an international reputation. for which his honorarium was double that received for the present portrait, 6000 Korona (Crowns) After many delays, he began painting in April. Sittings were in Budapest and the portrait was completed in June 1903.

The portrait was exhibited in November at the Winter Exhibition of the Hungarian Fine Art Society. The Baroness was not able to visit the exhibition for the opening, but her husband, Baron Ferenc Gerliczy, did. According to a grateful letter from the sitter to the artist, her husband extolled the portrait as: “beautiful, sublime, and so true to life that he imagined that I myself had stepped out of the frame.”

When she finally saw the portrait nine days later the Baroness found she did not agree and expressed her views in a letter to de László: “I met a number of acquaintances, and their general opinion entirely coincides with mine. Several corrections will have to be made, which I hope can easily be done. I am not coming to Vienna until April, but I would then ask you definitely to give me one or two sittings.” De László’s reply survives only in the form of a draft full of deletions and corrections, showing that he must have found it difficult to compose a response: “I hasten to reply to your letter, which has caused me great astonishment...I very much regret your assumption that I would make alterations to a finished picture on a whim … but should I be willing to do so I should at least like to know what, in your opinion, appears to be wrong with the portrait.”

There followed an extraordinary series of letters from the Baroness, which left the artist no choice but to agree to her demands: “Everybody I met at the exhibition or in Budapest during my short stay said that the portrait is ‘a disagreeable reminder’ of me, that it is not I, and that I should have the portrait done again, or have it corrected. Going in to details, it was generally felt that the head and the face are too large; in most portraits the head is painted smaller than life, but here it is just the opposite, although I have a small head. Perhaps you were thinking of my father’s face. The mouth is twisted, there is a strange expression around the nose and the mouth, the neck is too thick and the forehead is not quite right. Moreover, the figure is not like mine...Apart from friends and acquaintances, I heard two gentlemen and a lady talking among themselves and I went nearer and heard them say ‘One can recognise her, but it is not good.’ The main thing is that as the portrait will remain for my family, it is very desirable that it should be improved, and I hope you will make an exception and give me one or two sittings in April. I could wear a nice pearl necklace which would make my neck look thinner. I no longer have the green dress, but I think a well fitting black dress would help my figure. De László must have rejected her appeal, as in April 1904 she wrote a third and even more forceful letter: “Please confirm by return mail that I can send my portrait to your home by 27 April and that I can have two sittings on 28 and 29 April…trusting your reasonable understanding I hope that when you see me and the portrait you will agree to make a few highly necessary corrections.  By now many people including experts have seen the portrait in my home and they all agree that there are some major discrepancies in the likeness, to the extent that if it were not labelled with my name or if the viewer did not know that it is supposed to be me, they would not recognise me. There is such a sickly, suffering expression and the face is thin, with sunken cheeks. I look 10 years older, and even then it is not me...I can tell you that all those who suggested corrections were astounded that you should have refused. De László must have agreed to make some changes. There is no archival material to support this, but the present portrait shows the sitter wearing a black dress and a pearl necklace, changes that she herself had suggested. - The painting must have so alteration - the pearls are on the picture!

 

Baroness Gizella Fejérváry was born in Vienna 22 October 1863, the eldest daughter of Baron Géza Fejérváry de Komlóskeresztes and his wife, née Sarolta Biedermann de Üszög et Mosgó. Baron Géza Fejérváry was a general who had a distinguished military and political career. He was a close confidant of the Emperor-King Franz Joseph, and held a number of ministerial posts in Hungarian governments between 1884 and 1906; he served as Prime Minister of Hungary 1905-6.

.On 27 April 1884 she married Baron Ferenc Gerliczy de Arany et Szentgerlistye. Using her dowry they rebuilt the Gerliczy family’s chateau in Deszk, southern Hungary, which had been destroyed by fire in 1849. The couple had five children. Their eldest son Baron Félix Gerliczy was painted twice by de László, in 1922 and 1928, and their daughter in law Baroness Félix Gerliczy, née Princess Erzsébet Stirbey (Bibesco) was painted also in 1928. All three paintings and the present portrait remained in the same family collection. Baroness Gizella died in Budapest on 5 January 1943."
