A Feast for Turists' Eyes
Claude Monet might have left Budapest a couple of months ago, but the lovers of art have nothing to complain about: Miró and Picasso are in town!
The "Monet and Friends" exhibition left the Hungarian capital this spring after an incredibly successful stay: so many people were eager to see the works of the famous Impressionists, that the Museum of Fine Arts had to extend visiting hours and still, in front of it there were dozens of people waiting patiently for their turn to enter, each day for almost four months. Now there is another reason to rejoice for all those who like to fill their vacations with unforgettable memories: from the beginning of July until the end of September visitors have the opportunity to spend wonderful hours in the company of two of the most important personalities of 20th century painting: Joan Miró and Pablo Picasso.
At the Museum of Fine Arts, 48 of Miró's works are on display, including paintings, sculptures and graphics from his earliest period to the end of his career. The Catalan artist was one of the most famous representatives of Modernism and the exhibition shown now in Budapest is owned by the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia.
Picasso is hosted by the Art Gallery: almost a hundred of his graphics and drawings, used as book illustrations, belonging to Bancaja Bank from Valencia are presented along with a rich and spectacular collection introducing the Spanish art of the fifties.
