Many unknown, to the whole world,Hungarian painters are very good ones, impressive work oil on canvas, three floors of great pictures, portraits and many sculptures. No special price for non European senior citizens which isn’t the way to welcome strangers.

I started on the top floor and worked my way down. It helped me to understand the evolution of their art a bit better. I particularly enjoyed the upper floor. I read that at one point, their art was catagorized into three areas; supported, tolerated,...More
