Exciting Exhibitions Coming Up at Fine Arts Museum in Budapest
The Museum of Fine Arts this year is presenting exhibitions on the Hungarian-American photographic legacy, the heritage of Mesopotamia, and a retrospective marking the 180th birth anniversary of painter Mihály Munkácsy, the museum’s director said.

László Baán told a press conference that the museum attracted a record-breaking 800,000-plus visitors last year, partly thanks to the El Greco and Csontvary exhibitions.

This year’s programme will include a show The Hungarian American Photographic Legacy in cooperation with the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.

The show will present the works of some 30 photographers, including André Kertész, László Moholy-Nagy, Martin Munkácsi and Robert Capa, as well as lesser-known photographers of Hungarian origin who worked in the US, he said.

An exhibition opening in October presenting the heritage of Mesopotamia will display over 150 objects on loan from seven European collections, including Berlin’s Vorderasiatisches Museum, Paris’s Musee du Louvre and Vienna’s Kunsthistorisches Museum, Baán said.

Starting from November, an exhibition of more than fifty works by Munkácsy, as well as archive photographs, documents and objects will explore the painter’s life work and success, he said.
