Permanent exhibitions
A taste of the exhibition
In the 17th-18th centuries the orders in Hungary had the furniture of their churches and monasteries made by mostly their own joiners and wood-carvers. Bernat Baumgartner (1701-after 1773) was the head of the lay brothers working in the Jesuit workshop and was permanently staying at Székesfehérvár from 1749 to 1760. His name is connected with the planning and carving of the joinery and sculptural works of the altars (1750-1758), the pews (1760) and the furniture of the refectory facing the courtyard (1759), but sorry the latter was missing even in the 18th century. Bernat Baumgartner by his activity at Székesfehérvár is an outstanding master among the wood-carvers of his age. continue
