Leopold Horowitz, Hungarian: Lipót Horovitz - portrait painter of Hungarian origin, active in Warsaw since 1868. Father of painter Armin Horowitz. From 1850 he studied painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna with Carl Joseph Geiger, Carl Wurzinger and others. He graduated after seven years, receiving a first-class prize. In 1860, after visiting Berlin, Dresden and Munich, he settled in Paris, where he remained until 1868. In Paris he gained a reputation as an excellent painter of genre paintings and portraits, especially of children. In his work he imitated the style of Rembrandt, later Van Dyck. In 1868 he settled in Warsaw. He often traveled to Budapest, Vienna and Berlin to portray ladies of the aristocracy. While in Warsaw, he also painted pictures of Jewish diaspora life, such as Prayers in the Synagogue on the Anniversary of the Destruction of the Jerusalem Temple. He was highly recognized for his portraits of Princess Sapieha, George Brandes, Maurice Jocai, and the Zamoyski principality. In 1891 he was awarded a gold medal at an exhibition in Berlin. In 1893 he settled in Vienna.
