Cézanne, Scully, Pre-Raphaelites To Be Exhibited In Budapest This Year
Budapest’s Museum of Fine Arts and the National Gallery will show exhibitions featuring Cézanne, abstract artist Sean Scully, Hungarian impressionist Pál Szinyei Merse and others, the director of the two museums, László Baán, has just announced.

In April, the Museum of Fine Arts will open an exhibition commemorating the discovery of the tomb of Pharaoh Amenhotep II, followed in the summer by a show of drawings of Albrecht Dürer and his contemporaries and a major exhibition on Cézanne and modernism in the autumn, Baán said.

The National Gallery in the Buda Castle will have a show on English Pre-Raphaelites in the spring and a retrospective of acclaimed contemporary artist Sean Scully in the autumn, he added.

The National Gallery will also have an exhibition on renowned Hungarian impressionist Pál Szinyei Merse, he concluded.
