The Age of Modernity: Hungarian painting 1905-1925

On the occasion of the Hungarian-Italian Year of Culture, Rome's Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Moderna, in collaboration with the National Gallery in Budapest, presents over 100 Hungarian Modernist works including paintings, drawings, prints and sculptures. The works on show represent the polar opposites of Hungary's art from that era: the artists who sought out and embraced cutting-edge foreign influences, and the others who maintained close contact with indigenous traditions and local folklore. The exhibition focuses in particular on eight Neo-impressionist painters from the school of Nagybánya (in modern-day Romania) who broke ranks by exchanging the academic for the avant-garde. Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Moderna (GNAM), Viale delle Belle Arti 131, tel. 06322981,
