We are grateful to the Michael Marks Charitable Trust for their kind donation to support the launching of the Catalogue Raisonné online.
The Schroder and Harmsworth families generously sponsored the publication of the book A Brush with Grandeur.
The Fleming family (P.F. Charitable Trust), Mr. Richard de Unger and The Loyd Collection have been very supportive.
We are especially grateful for the donation of $5,000 in memory of Dr Marianne Seemann Glazek, great-niece of Philip de László, and lifelong enthusiast for his paintings.
We have also had generous donations from supporters who wish to remain anonymous. We wish to mark our appreciation here and to thank them most warmly.
Andrew Wilton, visiting research fellow at Tate Britain following a distinguished career at the Tate, the British Museum and the Royal Academy of Arts, is Advisor to the de László Catalogue Raisonné. Andrew has given us much valuable advice and contributed greatly to the hanging of the pictures for the A Brush with Grandeur exhibition of 2004.
Richard Ormond, former director of the National Maritime Museum, co-author of the John Singer Sargent Catalogue Raisonné, and curator with Sandra de Laszlo and Christopher Wood for A Brush with Grandeur, continues to share his considerable expertise on Catalogue Raisonné work.
Christopher Lloyd, C.V.O. Surveyor of The Queen’s Pictures 1988-2005, wrote an admirable essay on de László’s royal portraiture in the A Brush with Grandeur book that accompanied the 2004 exhibition and continues to be interested and supportive as the project develops. Desmond Shawe-Taylor, his successor, is demonstrating the same enthusiasm for the catalogue raisonné. Two of de László’s British Royal portraits feature in the e-gallery of the Royal Collection website, and many more are held privately by the Royal Family.
The National Portrait Gallery in London has reiterated its support for the Catalogue Raisonné while we work with them on the conserving and indexing of the de László Archive. To see the works by de László in the collection of the National Portrait Gallery and the related correspondence in the De Laszlo Archive there click here.

We work closely with the major London auction houses, Christie's, Sotheby's and Bonham's and freely provide catalogue notes for pictures they sell.
Hungarian National Gallery and Hungarian National Museum
Alas, there are no de László paintings on display, nor any mention of de László in the above websites, so the links provided lead to both museums' home pages.
The MKB Bank own a very fine early portrait of Madame Galambos (1888), and are strong advocates of our work. The published catalogue of their collection includes this picture and mentions the catalogue raisonné in the accompanying text.
Also in Budapest, we are working closely with Judit Virág, Tamás Kieselbach, the Nagyházi Gallery and the Nemes Gallery who continue to introduce us to de László’s paintings, especially from his early Hungarian period.
Through Christopher Wentworth-Stanley we also have the support of the Österreichische Galerie Belvedere in Vienna.
