Golden Age of Hungarian Painting (1836-1936) 21.10.2016-22.01.2017 Golden Age of Hungarian Painting (1836-1936)
zoom zoom print

The exhibition will present approximately 90 paintings coming mainly from two galleries: an internationally acclaimed collection of Gábor Kovács – one of the most important private art collections in Hungary, and from the Hungarian National Gallery.

The exhibition will focus on the period of one hundred years, beginning from the origins of Hungarian national painting, through the artistic turmoil of broadly defined fin de siècle, up to the interwar period, characterized by the coexistence of diverse trends. Selected paintings testify to how the local flavours and themes revived under European influences, giving rise to diversity so characteristic of the art of Central Europe.

The display will be accompanied by a catalogue in Polish and English, which will allow the reader to become familiar with the history of Hungarian painting in the 19th century, as well as its dynamic development in the subsequent century, when for several decades it kept pace with the latest trends, thus laying the foundations for the modern approach to art in Hungary.

Exhibition curators: Péter Fertőszögi, György Szücs
Curator on the part of NMK: Dr. Magdalena Ludera
