Guided Tour

Hungarian Art in the 19th Century

 

The re-organised permanent exhibition showcasing Hungarian fine art from 1810 to 1900 is displayed in the most impressive halls on the first floor of the Gallery. Visitors can again admire the well-known masterpieces at the new exhibition comprising some 150 paintings, 40 sculptures, 40 medals, and 33 applied art objects. Works are arranged according to new principles and in a different selection; one third of the exhibited objects had been previously visible on rare occasions. The nineteenth century is distinguished by the birth of national art and the emergence of the most important institutions of art, including museums, the academy, exhibitions, art prizes, as well as art criticism and art press. István Ferenczy’s Shepherdess, Pál Szinyei Merse’s Picnic in May, Miklós Izsó’s Woeful Shepherd, or Miklós Barabás’s Romanian Family Going to the Fair have virtually become iconic works of Hungarian national art and indelible examples of the collective Hungarian pictorial memory.
