Now on until 16 July. The 170th anniversary of Tivadar Csontváry Kosztka’s birth will be celebrated with an exhibition jointly staged by the Museum of Fine Arts–Hungarian National Gallery and the Janus Pannonius Museum of Pécs.

The exhibition of the two public collections, which preserve the greatest numbers of works by the painter genius, opened in April in Budapest and then, from August, it will be open to the public in Pécs for three months.

The selection of over forty works, providing a comprehensive overview of Csontváry’s oeuvre, will pay a worthy tribute to one of the most original and most well-known artists in the history of Hungarian painting.

The last exhibition devoted to Csontváry’s works in the Museum of Fine Arts was held sixty years ago, in 1963. Now, besides the best-known masterpieces of his oeuvre – for example, the thirty-square-metre Baalbek and other monumental canvases – the displayed material will be enriched by some paintings from private collections, including the Sacrificial Stone in Baalbek and the Sunset over the Bay of Naples, which were last displayed to the public in 1994, at the exhibition of the Hungarian National Gallery.
