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.
