This particular painting appealed to me. Simply love his technique of using pastels with the acrylic, and masterfully yet almost inconspicuously use the pastels and acrylics in the subject matter and in the background. A sense of unity and compatibility and completeness has been achieved. Desiderius Orbán was a Hungarian visual artist who was born in 1884.
