Museum part 1 - Hungarian National Gallery
Looking back on 2016 I realized that I went on just a pair of exhibitions, and decided to focus on that more this year. So naturally this close to my birthday I took a day off work, and went to the Hungarian National Gallery to check out it's permanent exhibitions. The ticket was surprisingly cheap, and they don't ask for a photo-ticket either, only that you don't use flash, which is nice.
The exhibitions we saw were:
- Art in the 19th Century
I realized this in my teen years, but while I do like art generally, the more recent it is, the more sure I'll not like it. With 19th Century, as long as it's not eccentric I tolerate it. And to tell the truth, I liked the literature inspired paintings a lot, felt like watching a re-make. Copper-art/coins not so much.
- Mihály Munkácsy and the Realism of the Fin-de-Siècle
One of my favourite painters - if there is any (^^). In his time tar and some self-mixed substance was used a lot, which is slowly but surely destroring his paintings. Watching it today will give a different light-shadow picture than 10 years from now.
- Masterpieces from the Museum of Fine Arts Budapest
This collection is in the Gallery because currently Fine Arts is restoration for another year or so. The collection is not the best, but they do have a little bit of everything.
- Church Adornments - Gothic Art in the Hungarian Kingdom, 1300–1500
- Late Gothic Winged Altarpieces
Though at first we didn't even want to go in, in the end this might have awed us the most.
- Late Renaissance and Baroque Art
Not sure what I thought it would be, but it felt strange. Mostly just portraits of people whose name don't tell me much.

Sorry for the late reply. I just posted a link to the pictures. Hope you'll like them. It might not be the same as being there and checking them out, but still. ^^
