Louis Madarasz Calligraphy - San Antonio Calligrapher
So anyone paying attention will notice that some of my work is of a different style from most other calligraphers in Houston. The difference that you see is called Spencerian calligraphy, which was the first American handwriting/calligraphy form started in the 1800's by Platt Rogers Spencer. This writing form evolved into a fancier form called Ornamental Penmanship. The greatest talent known for Ornamental Penmanship during the Golden Age was Louis Madarasz. As his family was exiled from Hungary, Madarasz was born in San Antonio, TX.
This is where my calligraphy passion lies as it is exhibited quite heavily in the website gallery. Below is my first attempt to imitate this particular specimen of his. HIs specimen is on top and my partial attempt is at the bottom. It's not his work by a long shot but closer than I expected to get for the first try.
