“A contemporary of Isidor Kaufmann, Lakos also studied in Budapest at the Academy of Art. Later he studied in Munich before moving on to Paris. There he was influenced by the Impressionists, and became one of the few artists to treat classical Judaic themes in what was considered at the time an advanced technique. His approach to Jewish subjects was one of respect and nobility in contrast to the almost caricaturist approach of his contemporaries.” (L. Krief). See also Benezit, Vol. VI p. 392.
