RIPPL-RÓNAI AND MAILLOL - The Story of a Friendship

Hungarian National Gallery

17 December 2014 - 17 May 2015

József Rippl-Rónai had at least as great an impact on modern Hungarian art as Aristide Maillol had on modern European sculpture. The friendship between these two influential artists, and the artistic documents of their relationship, are the focus of an exhibition opening at the Hungarian National Gallery in December 2014.

MUSEUM+ DESTINY

Hungarian National Gallery

16 April 2015

The topic of our Museum+ evening on 16 April is DESTINY. If you think “museuming” is your destiny, you should come and visit us. The talks and guided tours (mostly in Hungarian) will focus on fatal liaisons, the ominous fate awaiting artists and the unavoidable destiny. Could it be a fatal mistake to believe in fate? We have invited a theologian, a writer and a criminal psychologist to explore this topic. Card reading, wines from the Villányi wine region, delicious teas and music will complete this evening in the Hungarian National Gallery.

19th-century Art

A new permanent exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts

10 June 2013.

On 28 June a large-scale exhibition will open at the Hungarian National Gallery titled Impressionist and Post-impressionist Masterpieces by MONET, GAUGUIN, SZINYEI MERSE, RIPPL-RÓNAI from the Collections of The Israel Museum Jerusalem, the Hungarian National Gallery and the Museum of Fine Arts, which promises to be one of this year’s sensational shows. The material selected from Impressionist and Post-impressionist masterpieces of The Israel Museum Jerusalem will be augmented with works by Hungarian masters, as well as with the best pieces of the Museum of Fine Arts’ collection of Modern French painting. Putting the ten most sought after masterpieces of the Museum of Fine Arts (for example paintings by Monet, Boudin, Gauguin, Bonnard, Denis) up for loan to other museums provides us with the opportunity to substitute pictures that have been removed from the permanent exhibition with works that in the past received an undeservedly lesser role.
