The "Hungarian Fauves" from Paris to Nagybánya 1904-1914
BUDAPEST  •  Hungarian National Gallery  •  Ongoing

The Fauve movement formed around 1905–1906 had a big influence on the young generation of Hungarian artists. Several of them were students of Matisse himself (Géza Bornemisza, Csaba Vilmos Perlrott), while others regularly exhibited together with the Fauves at the famous Salon d’Automne in Paris (Róbert Berény, Béla Czóbel).

The exhibition presents the best examples of paintings and graphic art by the “Hungarian Fauves” – Czóbel, Lajos Tihanyi, Sándor Ziffer, Sándor Galimberti and others. Besides the Hungarian art there will be a small collection of original French works by Matisse, Derain, Vlaminck, Dufy, Puy, and Valtat, giving the opportunity for an authentic comparison of the similarities and differences.
