Thanks to easing epidemiological restrictions, the Hungarian National Gallery (MNG) reopens on May 13 with Desired beauty, a comprehensive exhibition displaying some of the masterpieces from the Pre-Raphaelite collection of Tate Britain, whereas the Museum of Fine Arts welcomes its visitors from May 12.
The first major exhibition of the 19th-century Pre-Raphaelite movement in Hungary will showcase almost a hundred works until 22 August. According to the information provided by the Hungarian National Gallery, along with the material from the Tate in London, an accompanying exhibition on the impact of the movement in Hungary, entitled The Beauty of Utopia, will also open at the MNG.
The exhibition Sean Scully: Passenger—A Retrospective will also be open until the end of May in the Hungarian National Gallery. Though the art exhibition opened in October last year, but due to the involuntary closure of the institution, it will be open to the public only for a short period. Sean Scully is one of the most important contemporary representatives of abstraction, and the MNG is displaying 110 of his works at the exhibition, the press release reminds.
Half picture, half veil, an art exhibition by painter and graphic artist Ilka Gedő will open in the MNG on 26 May. From Leonardo to Miró—150 years of drawings and prints, the first new temporary exhibition of the Museum of Fine Arts opens on 3 June.
The two member institutions of the Museum of Fine Arts, Vasarely Museum, Budapest, and the Ferenc Hopp Museum of Asiatic Arts welcomes their visitors again from 13 May.
