This statuette of Lajos Kossuth (also known as Louis Kossuth) was done by Gyula Julius Bezeredi. Kossuth was a Hungarian freedom fighter and revolutionary. During the revolution of 1848-49, he was the Governor-President of Hungary and was lauded in the United States as the father of Hungarian democracy. Bezeredi was a Hungarian sculptor who also created a statue of George Washington that sits in a park in Budapest. The White House has a small scale version of this statue of Washington in its collection. Both statues are made of bronze plaster and were presented to the White House in 1923 as a gift of Americans of Hungarian Origin.
