The millenary session of the Hungarian Parliament in 1896 passed a law whereby art collections previously held in different institutions were to be unified and placed in the newly-established Museum of Fine Arts. On the basis of a competitive tender, Albert Schickendanz and Fülöp Herzog were commissioned to design and construct the building, which opened in 1906. continue

The history of the Old Gallery of the Museum of Fine Arts is closely related to the history of collecting art objects in Hungary. Its birth is the result of assembling objects for centuries since some of the ecclesiastic collections and that of lords were formed from the end of the 17th until the 18-19th centuries. continue

At the foundation of the Museum of Fine Arts, the gypsum copies of statues embodied antiquity. The Antique Collection was only founded in 1908 after a decision. Following the initiation of Hekler Antal, the governments bought the collection of 135 pieces of Paul Arndt that was augmented in 1914. Until WWII, a new piece was added to it every now and again. continue
