Portrait of Jakab Rezsö (1877)

Portrait of Jakab Rezsö (1877)
Albumen print on cardboard, carte de visite
Gondy és Egey, Debreczen, dated Oct. 1877
entry number: cdv.2012.09

This handsome young man is identified on the reverse of the card as Jakab Rezsö, aged 19 in Oct. 1877 (therefore, born in 1857 or 1858). The inscription seems to read Kezsö, but such a name does not seem to exist, so I was left with two possibilities: Dezsö or Rezsö. While it would`ve been attractive to recognize in this young man the future Art Nouveau Hungarian architect, the second choice seems now the most reasonable. For the moment, his identity and whereabouts remain obscure.
