Laszlo Ritter Biography

Laszlo Ritter’s most striking feature is his joyous spontaneity. Each painting draws the viewer into a perfection of colour and tone, successfully mixing the dreamlike and the realistic, heightening and enriching each subsequent viewing.

Born in 1937, artist Laszlo Ritter’s personal struggle through the adversities of war-torn Europe and, later, under the heavy hand of the Communist regime, led him to seek salvation in painting from an early age. The Hungarian uprising in 1956 precipitated Laszlo’s bid for freedom and safety in England at age seventeen.

On his arrival in England, Ritter struggled to achieve recognition as an artist, spending much of his free time in galleries studying the Masters and their techniques. Slowly, his work started to achieve wider recognition and commercial success, allowing him to become a full time professional artist in 1976. Since then, Laszlo has been working from his studio in St. Ives in Cornwall. He was represented in the USA by Arnot Gallery in New York.

The most striking feature of Laszlo’s work is its joyous spontaneity. Each painting draws the viewer into a perfection of color and tone, successfully mixing the dreamlike and the realistic, heightening and enriching each subsequent viewing. Like the majority of Impressionists, Ritter derives most pleasure from schemes of cobalt blue, cadmium red and yellow.

Laszlo Ritter truly blossomed into a living Master with serious collectors seeking out his works from around the world.

Laszlo died in 2003.
