Budapest, June 26 (MTI) – The works of French masters are in focus at the rearranged 19th-century permanent exhibition that opened in the Budapest Fine Arts Museum today.
The whole collection of the around 1,000 paintings and sculptures made after 1800 was already rearranged two times, in 2005 and 2012, before, Zsofia Anna Kovacs told reporters.
The 19th-century French collection includes paintings by Cezanne, Courbet, Manet, Gauguin, Monet and Pissarro, as well as sculptures by Rodin.
Mid-19th-century German painting is represented by canvases of Leibl, Lenbach and Menzel and Austrian Biedermeier is represented by Waldmuller’s, Amerling’s and Danhauser’s paintings.
The Fine Arts Museum will open in September a temporary exhibition on Rembrandt and the golden era of Dutch art.
