J├ínos Tornyai was born in H├│dmez┼Ĺv├ís├írhely on 18, January, 1869 and died on 20, September, 1936. The painter is one of the significant personalities of the so called "realists of the great Hungarian plain", a creative, intellectual group.

He returnd to his birthplace after he finished his studies in Budapest and Paris, where he painted his dramatic dark-light, contrasting, dinamic landscape-and genre paintings In 1920 he moved from H├│dmez┼Ĺv├ís├írhely and from this time his art was renewed: he began to use a lot more colors, the landscapes and interiors become more lyrical.

The artist was awarded several times.

His consistency was unique in dealing with the same theme: the drama that surrounds heritage, which he called 'lot'. He did around 30 paintings and 100 drawings on this topic.

The selection of this unusual endeavor is shown in a separate ward of the exhibition. The visitors may peep into the difficulty of the creating process and to the contention it brings to the artist.
