Permanent exhibition
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 László Hunyadi and The Christening of Vajk, the most significant historical paintings by Viktor Madarász, Mór Than, Sándor Liezen-Mayer, Bertalan Székely, and Gyula Benczúr fill two impressive rooms on the first floor.

In the adjacent rooms the visitor can see landscapes by Károly Markó as well as major works by József Borsos, Miklós Barabás, Mihály Zichy, Gyula Benczúr, and Bertalan Székely. A separate room presents the work of the greatest renewers of 19th-century Hungarian art: Pál Szinyei-Merse, Mihály Munkácsy and László Paál. 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 László Mednyánszky, Géza Mészöly, Lajos Deák-Ébner, Simon Hollósy, and István Csók form the backbone of this unit.

The Museum of the National Széchényi Library in the Buda castle (F building)
There is no similar museum in the whole world. It does not display a book historical exhibition or a single antique library hall, but the everyday athmosphere around the librarians and readers between the years 1802 and 1985. It displays items of several Hungarian libraries. continue
Museum of the Calvnist High School
The museum serves as a regional and a College museum as well. The Debrecen College was established in 1538. This dual connection can be found in every sphere of its operation, whether it is the collection target or the permanent exhibitions. continue
István Dobó castle museum
The first church to be built on castle hill was that constructed for the bishopric of Eger which was founded by St. Stephen. It was succeeded by a cathedral built in the romanesque and gothic styles. The bishop's castle, which was fortified after the Tatar invasion of 1241, underwent continual improvement up until the beginning of the eighteenth century. As a result of the heroic defence of the castle against the Turks in 1552 Eger Castle won renown and gained a patriotic significance as a symbol of Hungarian resilience. The following exhibitions can be seen within the walls of the István Dobó Castle Museum. continue
Oven in Kalán
I wanted to provide heating for my workshop, which was built in 1989. I had the parts of an old tile stove, which I wanted to have set again. However, for practical reasons I thought that rather an iron-stove should be put in, since it is more flexible for quick heating-up, so that it would be warm during, and not after working. The thought was followed by action. I have offered the tile stove for an iron stove. I have never forgotten the words of the haulier, who said that we were exchanging rust for dust. In this way I got my first iron stove. continue
