A little information about St. Ladislaus of Hungary (A.D. 1095) Ladislaus came to the throne in 1077 and was the embodiment of the ideal knight of chivalry. He died suddenly at age 55 and was buried in Oradea Mare in Transylvania. Information about this statue: Once adorned the high altar of the Inner City Parish Church (Belvarosi plebaniatempolm) in Budapest. Imre Steindl, the architect of the Budapest Parliament, restored the church in the late 1880’s early 1890’s erecting a majolica high altar. The Zsolnay factory was chosen to manufacture the altar. The statues, one on either side of the altar (which was 35’ tall), were designed by Antal Szecsi. During WWII the altar was heavily damaged and was removed from the church. We purchased the statue in Hungary and had it exported with Museum export certificates over 20 years ago. This piece is signed and dated by the artist. This object is located on the second floor of our gallery and the buyer is responsible for arranging for moving and shipping this item.
