This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Joszi Koppay was born in Vienna in 1859 with Hungarian nationality.  He was trained as an architect but soon devoted his life to painting, becoming a student in Munich in 1884.  His teachers were A H. Makart and H. Canon.

In 1887 he became a court painter in Madrid but never settled in Spain and returned to Germany, living in Berlin. He also spent time in Paris and obtained an honorable mention at the Paris Salon in 1888.  It was probably here that he launched his career as a fashionable portrait painter.

Koppay’s clients included Henrik Ibsen, Paul Lindau, the Austrian Imperial Family, the families of Harriman, Roosevelt and Rockefeller.  The Allgemeines Lexikon der Bildenden Künstler (1907-50) states that Koppay’s art suffered from his desire to please the client and the example given is his Rothschild portrait.
