Vasarely Museum: Class Visits and Birthday Parties
Bringing Art to Kindergartens
31 October 2014 - 15 February 2015
Rembrandt and the Dutch Golden Age, a large-scale exhibition to run in the Museum of Fine Arts from 31 October surveys the period of 17th-century Dutch art, one of the golden ages of European culture. The exhibition is built around Rembrandt, the greatest master of the period, by whom 20 masterpieces will be on display. The exhibition will showcase over 170 works by some 100 painters, of which 40 originate from the Museum of Fine Arts’ rich Dutch collection and 130 paintings will be contributed by private and public collections, with the most important loaning institutions including the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, the National Museum in Stockholm, the Louvre in Paris, the National Gallery in London, the Getty Museum in Los Angeles , the Metropolitan in New York, the Uffizi in Florence and the Prado in Madrid. A further sensation of the exhibition is that in addition to the significant number of works by Rembrandt – including the painting known as his earliest and his last self-portrait – visitors can also view three works by Vermeer.

The exhibition titled Immendorff. Long Live Painting! is the second in a series on “Classic Contemporary German” painters at the Museum of Fine Arts Budapest, following on from the Günther Uecker exhibition, Material Becomes Picture, in 2012. These shows, to be held every two years, are intended to familiarise the Hungarian public with some of the most emblematic – and now world-famous – individuals who represented the major phenomena and trends in post-war (West) German art movements.

The American artist Alan Sonfist was one of the first practitioners of the movement known as earth art, land art or environmental art, and is one of its best known exponents. The work he made in Manhattan, in the heart of New York City, titled Time Landscape, not only sealed Sonfist’s fame, but is also regarded as the first work of land art in a public space. This emblematic work celebrates its fiftieth birthday in 2015. The exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts Budapest is the first to commemorate this momentous anniversary.
