Including such major emblematic works of historical painting as The Women of Eger, The Mourning of L├íszl├│ Hunyadi and The Christening of Vajk, the most significant historical paintings by Viktor Madar├ísz, M├│r Than, S├índor Liezen-Mayer, Bertalan Sz├ękely, and Gyula Bencz├║r fill two impressive rooms on the first floor.

In the adjacent rooms the visitor can see landscapes by K├íroly Mark├│ as well as major works by J├│zsef Borsos, Mikl├│s Barab├ís, Mih├íly Zichy, Gyula Bencz├║r, and Bertalan Sz├ękely. A separate room presents the work of the greatest renewers of 19th-century Hungarian art: P├íl Szinyei-Merse, Mih├íly Munk├ícsy and L├íszl├│ Pa├íl. The one-time ballroom of the palace displays works of Naturalist and early plein-air painting that in many instances paved the way to Modernism. Works by L├íszl├│ Medny├ínszky, G├ęza M├ęsz├Âly, Lajos De├ík-├ëbner, Simon Holl├│sy, and Istv├ín Cs├│k form the backbone of this unit.
