The comprehensive exhibition celebrates the 170th anniversary of Csontváry’s birth, regarded as one of the most original and most well-known artists in the history of Hungarian painting.
The show brings together the greatest number of works so far, with several of his best-known monumental canvases on loan from the Hungarian National Gallery and the Csontváry Museum of Pécs.
“The oeuvre of perhaps the most original master in the history of Hungarian painting has now been united,” László Baán, the director of the museum, told reporters at a press tour of the exhibition.
The exhibition features titles including the iconic Ruins of the Ancient Greek Theatre at Taormina, the thirty-square-metre Baalbek, the Pilgrimage to the Cedars in Lebanon and the Lonely Cedar, among others.
The exhibition will run until July 16 in Budapest and travel on to Pécs afterwards.
