Pal Fried – Old/Nude Female Portraits

Pál Fried (16 June 1893, Hungary – 6 March 1976, New York City) is a well-known Hungarian artist of the 20th century whose art is mostly associated with nude female portraits. In Fried’s works one can easily trace the typical features of  the French Impressionist School of Renoir and Degas. Apart from portraits, Freid also painted landscapes, seascapes and views of Paris. After his post-war immigration to the United States, Fried opened a new chapter in his creative life by painting cowboys and typical landscapes of the American West.

Today we would like to introduce you the most impressive part of Fried’s works ‒ his nude female portraits. Painted in one and the same bold loose style, all his portraits bear the touch of individuality of each model. Fried named his paintings after them, which was another non-artistic way to describe a personality: Francine, Carmen, Annabelle ‒ these names burst your imagination and make the paintings even more attractive. Look at these women: they are of different age, nationality, occupation but in each of them Fried managed to discover sensuality and beauty and make them evident for the viewer.

            I have a 12X12in. oil on wood, Framed. Signed only Fried. I have never had it authenticated, or apraised, although it has writing on the back from previous auctions. It is a portrait of a woman siting with single breast exposed. From what Ive seen of his other paintings I have no doubt of it beeing his. The signature, while not both names,(which is very unusual) matches what I’ve seen. It is a very beautifull piece, the value of which I do not Know. Are you interested?

    Hi, I have a painting that appears identical to the first painting you show “lady in red” (looking back over her shoulder) you show at least one copy in your list. Are these multiple originals or do you think that some of these are copies. Is there someone who can authenticate them (I am thinking for my painting in particular). Thank you. MMR

      I too have that painting, and it certainly looks nearly identical, except for subtle differences. Could he have done any type of oil on canvas reproductions?

    I, too, am wondering about multiple paintings/subtle differences. I have a framed “Reclining Nude”, and have seen several unframed and one exact frame during online searches. Are these copies? I thought not.

      Hi, I have had 4 oval shaped framed young ballerina prints that were in my bedroom during my childhood. I now am restoring the frames a bit, but am wondering about them. I have tracked down the artist as Pal Fried, and one of my pictures is “Willing To Learn”. I would love to find out if the other 3 also have titles. These are only prints, so am not looking for value other than I love them and want them to hang in my new grand daughter’s room. I can send photos of the set, if anyone can answer this.
      Thank you so much for any help.
      Mary Ellen

    I have 2 fried pal paintings. They are different than all of the ones we see. It is an Algerian scene with too women in front. The other represents argentinian men on grey horses. Quite spectacular.
    I live in Montreal.

    For those of you commenting on having paintings that are similar to others, note that Fried somewhat fell out of vogue in about the sixties as be became notorious for copying his own work — some copies less patiently rendered than others. Same model, same pose, same clothes, different fabric color, different backgrounds. I’m sure he did all of us who collect his work (I have four) a disservice, but I guess he had to pay the bills…
