Director of the National Gallery and Museum of Fine Art László Baán told the press on Monday that Budapest will be on the map of the world’s most important museums in the few next months, with two simultaneous large-scale exhibitions, one devoted to Picasso and the other to Modigliani.

He highlighted that the Modigliani show includes a large photograph of Picasso’s studio with a Modigliani portrait on the wall, which Picasso had bought because he admired Modigliani.
