Most of the pictures come from the collection of Museo Dolores Olmedo in Mexico City.
Then, from October, the National Gallery will welcome guests with an exhibition titled ‘Bacon, Freud and the London School’, thus presenting one of the most influential periods of modern British painting. The collection comes from Tate.
The last exhibition of the year will commemorate the 110th anniversary of the birth of Dezső Korniss.
Moreover, from May, you can also enjoy Julian Rosefeldt’s Manifesto video installation starring Cate Blanchett.
Lastly, they also announced that the Museum of Fine Arts would be reopened in October, after many months of reconstruction. The three-year-long renovation and the rehousing of the works of art cost 15 billion forints (~EUR 48m) in total.
