Change of Pace

The exhibition is introduced by the post-1945 changes, works of art created in the spirit of progressiveness but at the same time linked to pre-war antecedents and testifying to a synthesis of styles that existed side by side and influenced each other (Expressionism, Constructivism, Surrealism, etc.). Visitors can see works from the 1950s: genre paintings, depictions of work and workers, and portraits in accordance with the dictatorship's arts policy of the day, these are stylistically homogeneous and follow the themes laid down at this time. In the next rooms there are works by a new generation.

Non-figurative trends existing in parallel appear as adaptations of Abstract Expressionism as well as of (Neo-)Geometrical, Structuralist and Organic endeavours. Figurative tendencies, versions of Pop Art and Hyperrealism, also significant at the time, are on view in the last section. On the corridor opening from the last row of rooms radical Avant-Garde works can be found primarily built on the use of photography, consisting largely of action documentations, and objects.

The emuseum entrance opens from the inner yard of the castle
Thanks to her growing sense of nationhood and her developing middle class, during the course of the nineteenth century Hungary saw the creation of several museums. First among these new institutions was the National Museum. A museum dedicated solely to the history of Budapest came into existence only toward the end of the last century. Its core collection consisted of finds from the building sites, from archaeological excavations, and earlier collections which help shed light on of Budapest's history. continue

Museum building
The Village Museum of Cigánd revives the process of how the village became town in the 1920's. The Village Museum is the result of reconstruction. It was originally divided into a room, porch, chamber and was built in the 1900's. Because the yards were too small, the so-called long yards that connected many houses were formed in Cigánd. continue
The museum functions in the ex-residency of one of the most flourishing textile businesses of the past, in the main building of the Goldberger Company founded in 1784. In the ground floor of the more then 200-year-old building there had been a clothe-painting business going on, and the first floor was used by the Goldberger family.
