Basement level – Egyptian Art, Classical Antiquities
Ground floor – Renaissance Hall, Romanesque Hall
level 1 – European Art 1250–1600

LEONARDO AND THE BUDAPEST HORSE AND RIDER
31 October 2018 ‒ 6 January 2019
Leonardo and the Budapest Horse and Rider will be the first temporary exhibition in the renewed Museum of Fine Arts. The dossier exhibition displaying almost twenty works and mounted to commemorate the approaching 500th anniversary of Leonardo da Vinci’s death can be seen in the museum’s newly renovated Michelangelo Hall from autumn 2018. The Budapest Horse and Rider will be presented in the company of masterpieces by Leonardo and his contemporaries loaned by foreign collections and seen in Hungary for the first time. Leonardo’s ten drawings and the sculptures of his fellow artists inspired by the master will faithfully document the problem that remained unresolved during the Renaissance and which Leonardo strove to answer for more than four decades: the creation of a free-standing rearing horse and rider.
