Alajos Strobl

Strobl, Alajos

 

Born June 21, 1856, in Liptóújvár; died Dec. 13, 1926, in Budapest. Hungarian sculptor.

Strobl studied at the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts in the 1870’s. His monumental works, such as the monuments to J. Arany (bronze, 1893) and other figures of Hungarian history and culture in Budapest, are dominated by a tendency toward superficial effects. Strobl’s portrait work, including his self-portrait (terra-cotta, 1878, Hungarian National Gallery, Budapest), is characterized by moving, realistic expressiveness.
