The restaged exhibition of the Kovács Gábor Collection now focuses on pieces from the 20th century, to represent the emergence of modern art in Hungary through the work of such eminent artists as József Rippl-Rónai, János Vaszary and Sándor Bortnyik. During the period from the late 19th century until the Second World War, Hungarian art was almost completely in step with Western European art, particularly with French and German painting. Visitors can thus witness how French Impressionism gained ground in the country, see the appearance in Hungary of the isms that rose from the early 20th century (Fauvism, Cubism, Expressionism, Constructivism), and can finally observe the influence of the new, post-World War I trends, such as art deco, on Béla Kádár, or the appearance of classicizing tendencies in the work of Béla Kontuly. The exhibition presents the Collection’s focal points from the Nagybánya school, which marked the symbolic birth of the period, through the neo-Impressionist endeavours, to the avant-garde trends.

The coloured ink drawings that represent characters from Chinese theatre lie at the intersection of two traditional art forms, as painters provide the heroes of drama with a new life. The dramatis personae of history and legends can be seen in special theatrical moments, expanded to symbolic importance. Yet they are contemporary reflections: today’s artists seek new viewpoints between tradition and modernity, a tension that is also one of the most involved problems of Chinese culture, one that is again provoking debate more and more often. This exhibition offers a momentary insight into this dynamic discourse, which never stops searching for new answers.
