EXHIBITION
Fine Art 2021.10.06. - 2021.12.05.
The focus of Baranyay’s interest as an artist was the human body: in his numerous self-portraits and hand depictions he used his own body, while the bodies of his friends allowed him to observe the forms different from his own body in his series The Married Couple, Pictures of Backs, Handshakes and The Márffy Girls. continue
Literature 2021.10.12. - 2021.11.28.
Pilinszky, a Kossuth Prize laureate poet, turned to photography in 1965, by which time his volume titled On the Third Day (1959) had been published. This work represented the peak of his career up to that point but it also carried the threat of the artist eventually being silenced. continue
We can find a rich variety of popular hand craft items in our museum. We can see carved and painted furniture, horse hair jewelries, wrought iron objects, ornamented eggs, falk music instruments and many other outstanding items of the popular arts of past decades. continue
The permanent exhibition was extended by the heritage of a teacher, the so-called Zana-collection. The most valuable items of the collection are displayed on the exhibition representing the popular arts of Kalotaszeg. continue
The Romans were the first to produce brick in the territory of Hungary. The name 'tégla' also originates from the Latin word "tegula". The first brick marks were also inherited from the Romans - they stamped the legion number into the still wet product, that is, they draw a circle, a cross or other symbols made up of simple forms. It was a frequent occurrence during the drying of the clay products that house animals ran across them: thus, we also inherited a number of dog and cat footprints from the Roman age on some beautiful pieces. continue
Gyula Juhász
Literature
Among the walls of the Espersit house - by means of contemporary manuscripts, books, photographs and paintings - the visitor may acquaint himself with the everyday life of three prominent artists: Gyula Juhász, Attila József and Ferenc Móra. continue
