Great Paintings, Small Masterpieces:
Selection of Early 20th Century Hungarian Art from the Nancy G. Brinker Collection
The Forbes Galleries (Picture Gallery)
01/24/2009 – 03/28/2009

The exhibition introduces Hungarian artists who worked from the 1860s to the 1930s and are well-known in Hungary. It includes works by the Seekers, the first group of modernist painters in Budapest, as well as Hungarian avant-garde artists whose works carry political undertones. Early Hungarian modernists did not trend toward abstraction; instead their art remained structured and figurative. Ranging from the Cubist still lifes of Róbert Berény and landscapes of József Nemes-Lampérth to the constructivist work of Imre Szobotka, the canvases reveal the influence of Impressionism, Cubism, Fauvism and Expressionism. These works were assembled by Nancy Brinker when she served as U.S. Ambassador to Hungary.
