I promised to put up some examples of his work that I realy like. He seems to have had a particular affinity with music as around half of his portraits are of composers or musicians. And they show him at his very best. Here are four famous composers

And I particularly like this portrait of the great tenor, leo Slezak. Toth really captures the sense of mischief for which Slezak was renowned. At the end of Lohengrin, Slezak was waiting for the boat drawn by a white swan that bears the hero away. When the machinery went wrong and the swan instead sailed past without stopping Slezak turned to the audience and asked 'What time is the next swan?'
