Amsterdam museum shows Hungarian avant-garde

An exhibition showing works by 19 Hungarian avant-garde artists has opened in Amsterdam’s Jewish Historical Museum, according to the museum’s website.

Dubbed From Fauvism to Surrealism: Jewish Avant-Garde Artists From Hungary, the exhibition presents works from the first half of the 20th century, a period seeing war, nationalism and growing anti-Semitism.

Painters featured at the exhibition include Róbert Berény and Béla Czobel, members of the group called The Eight, as well as Béla Kádár, László Moholy-Nagy, Armand Schonberger, Lili Ország and Lajos Vajda.

Most of the 80 titles have never been on display in the Netherlands before.
