Biography[edit]

Zsuzsi Roboz was born in Budapest, where her father, Imre Roboz, was the manager of the Vígszínház theatre, which specialised in operettas. Her mother was a society hostess. Her father disappeared, killed, as her family later discovered, by the invading Russians. She and her mother managed to escape.[1] After a brief period in France, she was sent to secretarial school in London but would pursue a career in painting. Some of her paintings are exhibited at the National Portrait Gallery and the Tate Gallery. She was best known for her portraits of dancers, musicians and writers.[2]
