Gyula Benczúr (1844 – 1920) was a Hungarian painter and teacher, known for his history paintings and portraits. He did some work for "mad" King Ludwig II of Bavaria. He taught in Weimar, Prague and Munich and worked with Karl von Piloty.
In his historical painting “Recapture of the Buda Castle in 1686” he uses a dramatic gesture of a the triumphant invader on a white horse, with a fallen soldier in the foreground. Note the repoussoir figure on horseback at the extreme left.
“Baptism of Vajk” uses Rembrandtesque lighting and a lot of variety of paint texture.
Ridges of paint, fairly loosely applied, suggest the heavy brocaded sleeve.
"Arrest of Ferenc Rákóczi II at the Fortress of Nagysáros" is a good example of shapewelding of the light masses.
