Hungarian National Gallery, Budapest

19th century painting, sculpture

Our exhibition, presenting 19th-century art, surveys the work of almost 100 years, beginning in the late 18th century. Here we can see almost all the important works from the time of National Romanticism that have for generations determined the national visual memory. 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.

A soproni Várostorony  - lábánál a múzeum bejáratával
The symbol of Sopron is the T┼▒ztorony (Fire Tower) Its bottom part was built upon Roman wall remains. From the 13th century it served as a gate tower of the town walls. It gained its present form (the baroque round balcony and its cap) after the town fire of 1976. Watchmen of the T┼▒ztorony had a very important task: to watch the area and indicate possible fires by a lamp or by colourful flags. They also gave signals when strange soldiers or wine transporters were coming toward the town. They had to play some musical instruments, too, for at weddings, burrials or town celabrations they had to provide the music. continue
