Vincent van Gogh in Budapest 2 December 2006 - 20 March 2007
http://hungaryeurope.googlepages.com/hungary.htm

The Museum of Fine Arts celebrates its 100th birthday with a
large-scale exhibition of the works of Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890).
Visitors will have the opportunity to see nearly eighty works by the
post-Impressionist Dutch painter. The works will arrive at the museum
from more than 40 collections worldwide, from museums such as the Van
Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, the Muse D'Orsay in Paris, The
Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, and the National Gallery of Art
in Washington.

The art of van Gogh needs no introduction since his person as well as
his fascinating life and work are well known among art lovers. Yet,
there have been only a handful of exhibitions displaying his works in
Hungarian museums. The current exhibition includes outstanding
paintings from van Gogh's ouevre, on loan from prominent foreign
museums, rarely seen drawings and graphic works owned by the Museum of
Fine Arts, as well as works that once formed part of Hungarian private
collections. The large-scale exhibition comprising nearly 150 works has
five parts. The monographic part exhibiting van Gogh's ouevre
includes 43 paintings, 24 drawings and 10 graphic works (lithographs
and engravings). This selection places special emphasis on the early,
Dutch, stage of the artist's work to show the beginnings, and then
the sudden emergence of his individual style. The Parisian stage is
represented by a smaller number of works. It illustrates how van Gogh
mastered the Impressionist style of landscape painting and shows the
appearance of the characteristics of his own style. The works in the
exhibition embrace all the themes in the artist's oeuvre. During the
selection of the works it was important not to display the most
frequently reproduced works from this diverse oeuvre but to also
display lesser-known works of the same outstanding excellence. As a
prelude to the exhibition, artists who influenced van Gogh's art will
be introduced in two parts: first, those Old Masters who had a
determining role in the development of van Gogh's art Rembrandt
(1606-1669), Delacroix (1798-1863), Daubigny (1817-1878) and Millet
(1814-1875) and, secondly, works by van Gogh's Dutch contemporaries
who influenced his art. Reproductions of Japanese wood engravings that
were also found in van Gogh's own collection will be exhibited in a
separate section. The engravings, consisting of almost two dozen
pieces, have been selected from Hungarian collections. The final part
of the exhibition focuses on the influence exerted by the Dutch master
on early 20th-century Hungarian art and explores parallels to be found
between the master's work and Hungarian fine art. Thus, visitors will
see works by Mihly Munkcsy, Lszl Pal, Jnos Nagy Balogh,
Tivadar Csontvry Kosztka, Jzsef Rippl-Rnai, as well as the
Hungarian fauves (wild beasts) Gyula Derkovics and Gyula Czimra. This
part of the exhibition will evoke the period in which the Museum of
Fine Arts was opened 100 years ago, as well as the characteristics of
its art.

Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) alkotsaibl nyl nagyszabs
killtssal nnepli 100. szletsnapjt a Szpm?vszeti
Mzeum. A trlaton a posztimpresszionista holland fest? csaknem
nyolcvan alkotst tekintheti meg a nagyk?z?nsg, melyek a vilg
szmos, t?bb mint 40 gy?jtemnyb?l, t?bbek k?z?tt az

Van Gogh m?vszett, valszn?leg nem kell bemutatnunk, hiszen

Killtsunkon a rangos klf?ldi mzeumoktl k?lcs?nz?tt, Van

magngy?jtemnyekben ?rz?tt m?vek kerlnek bemutatsra.

A mintegy 150 m?vet bemutat killts ?t egysgb?l ll. A Van
Gogh letm?vet bemutat monografikus rsz 43 festmnyt, 24 rajzot
s 10 grafikt (litogrfit s rzkarcot) mutat be. A
vlogatsban nagy sllyal szerepel az letm? els?, hollandiai
szakasza, hogy rzkeltesse a kezdeteket, majd a hirtelen kialakul
sajt stlust. A prizsi korszakot kevesebb m? mutatja be, ezek az
impresszionista tjkpfests elsajttst s az egyni
sajtsgok megjelenst kpviselik. A kivlogatott m?vek
bemutatjk Van Gogh tematikjnak minden szelett. A m?vek
vlogatsakor az volt a cl, hogy e sokoldal m?vszetet ne a
legt?bbsz?r reproduklt m?vek kpviseljk, hanem kevsb
ismert, de pp oly kivl m?veket is bemutasson. A trlat
bevezet?je kt rszben mutatja be azokat az alkotkat, akik
hatssal voltak Van Gogh m?vszetre. Egyrszt azon rgi mesterek
munkival tallkozhatnak az rdekl?d?k, akik Van Gogh
m?vszetnek kialakulsban meghatrozak voltak (Rembrandt
(1606-1669), Delacroix (1798-1863), Daubigny (1817-1878) s Millet
(1814-1875) ) msrszt a fest?t befolysol holland kortrsak
munkival is. A trlaton kl?n egysgknt lthatak olyan
sokszorostott japn fametszetek, amelyek Van Gogh gy?jtemnyben
is megtallhatak voltak. A kttucatnyi metszet magyarorszgi
gy?jtemnyekb?l kerlt a killtsra. A trlat  zrfejezete
