High-Profile Art Exhibitions Ahead In Budapest
The Museum of Fine Arts and the National Gallery plan to stage three significant exhibitions this year.

In the first, the Museum of Fine Arts will display 80 drawings by Michelangelo in an exhibition entitled The Triumph of the Body from April 5 to June 30.

Artworks will be borrowed from the British Museum, Florence’s Uffizi gallery, the Louvre, Casa Buonarroti, Albertina, Teylers Museum and the Ashmolean Museum for the show. 

The National Gallery will present The Surrealist Movement from Magritte to Dali (pictured on top), from June 27 to October 20. It is based on exhibits selected from the extremely rich collection of Paris’s Pompidou Centre. 

Later in the year, the Museum of Fine Arts will present Rubens and the Golden Era of Flemish Painting from October 24 to February 16, 2020.

Some 30 paintings by Peter Paul Rubens and more than ten by Anthony Van Dyck, as well as works by other masters, will be on display. The show draws on nearly 120 works of art from 50 major collections, among them the Hermitage, the Prado, the National Gallery in Washington and the National Gallery in London.
