Adolphe Weisz (1838-aft.1900)
Adolphe Weisz, the painter of "It is I!" is a Hungarian by birth, from Buda,
but studied art in Paris under Jalabert. He carried away a medal at the Salon of 1875 and has
since repeated his successes. The scene of his picture is a private box of the Paris Opera House
on the night of a masked ball. His heroine has been flirting away the evening with a gallant
of her acquaintance who has not recognized her under her mask. The hour for unmasking has arrived,
and she shows her face to him in coquettish mockery at the manner in which she has tricked him.
