This biography from the Archives of AskART:

Laszlo Kadlacsik (1925-1989)

He was born in Hungary in 1925. His love for and attempt at art began early in life. His skills developed with his attendance an Industrial Art School in this heavily Soviet influence society. As his skills evolved, he received favor to study under such great European Masters as Bozzo, Molnar and the world renowned Emil Novotny.  He has numerous commissioned works which still reside throughout Russian and other European museums.

It comes as no surprise that this Hungarian born artist found his Acampo, California farm both a place of comfort and inspiration.  For 600 years the Kadlacsik family occupied their land in his native Szeged, Hungary, tying him closely to his heritage and the earth.

In 1930, at the age of five, Laszlo drew his first picture; had his modest middle class parents realized that one day their son would become a known post- impressionist artists, perhaps they would have given his efforts more encouragement.

Finishing high school and later graduating from Industrial Art School, Kadlacsik gained recognition as a graphic and decorative folk artist.  For two years he worked closely with Hungarian Masters Alexander Molnar and Julius Bozzo.  Moving to Budapest and the Fine Art Academy, Laszlo Kadlacsik became a favorite student of Emil Novotny.

After the surrender of Germany, Hungary like so many middle European nations never quite escaped the influence of the Soviets.  Ordered by his government to design and execute works of art for then Russian Premier Joseph Stalin, Kadlacsik's efforts are still on view in Moscow museums.

Laszlo eventually moved to the San Joaquin Valley area of California and acquired a farm in Acampo (near Stockton). He continued being inspired artistically and produced great art to the later part of his life.

Laszlo was possibly best known for his still life and floral theme works though he was also noted for figures, fantasy and landscapes.  He painted many commissioned pieces (some specifically for Stalin) including many which still reside throughout Russian and other European museums.  He died in 1989.
