||`Abdu'l-Bahá was sick and the weather was bitterly cold. He went to the studio of Professor Robert A. Nadler of the Royal Academy of Art to sit for a portrait. He gave him a total of three sittings during His visit to Budapest. [AB387, MRHK368-9]
"The portrait is remarkable not only because of its art, but also because of its later miraculous fate. Reportedly, after heavy bombing in 1945, only that part of the building in which the painting was hung remained unharmed." [Renée Szanto-Felbermann Two Portraits p3, Rebirth: Memoirs of Renée Szanto-Felbermann p159]
The painting was purchased and taken to the Bahá'í World Centre in 1972. [SBBR14p118]
See SBBR14p108 for a picture of the portrait.
In the afternoon He visited the home of Sirdar Omrah Singh. [AB387]
In spite of a raging blizzard a good many attended His address at the hotel in the evening. [AB387]
