Exhibitions of the Affiliated Institutions
Hungarian National Gallery
29 June 2016 - 2 October 2016
Presenting statues, paintings and drawings, this extensive display explores the main periods and stylistic turns in the work of Amedeo Modigliani (1884–1920), as well as his relationship to his contemporaries.The myths surrounding Modigliani’s life and the record prices his works fetch often obscure the artist’s real accomplishment. He became one of the most important masters of European modernism while never really abandoned classical genres and classical modelling. The exhibition seeks to highlight the complexity and original modern quality of the work of an artist who followed his own path. The young Modigliani left his native Italy and arrived in Paris in 1906, and soon became involved in the artistic circles of the Montmartre, and then of the Montparnasse. The show places a special emphasis on introducing the intellectual and artistic milieu of the two localities, as well as their important figures.

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.
