Portrait Battle: Von Lenbach vs. Vilma Parlaghy

“Vilma Parlaghy was born at Hajdu Dorog, Hungary, in the seventles. When but a little girl she exhibited such a genius for art that her parents gave her all the advantages avallable at Buda-pest. When she was 14 she was taken to Munich, that she might study under the famous Von Lenbach. That master, however, took few pupils, and especially did not wish to be bothered with a girl. Vilma, piqued, set up a studio of her own and made a copy of one of Von Lenbach’s noted paintings, which so amazed him that he consented to teach her.” San Francisco Bulletin, Wed, Jul 08, 1908 ·Page 12
