Museum of Fine Arts, Budapest: Raphael, El Greco, Van Dyck, Dürer in a neoclassical building
The Hungary’s premier gallery of art from early times until the end of the 18th century is on display in a stately neo-Classical Museum of Fine Arts at Heroes’ Square. The gallery began with a collection donated by Archbishop Pyrker of Eger and an extensive art collection purchased by the State in the 1870’s from the Esterházy family.
Today, as well as Egyptian, Roman and Greek exhibits there is a particularly fine collection of Italian art, affording a comprehensive survey of the various schools of painting from the twelfth to the eighteenth centuries.
The Spanish collection includes no fewer than seven masterpieces by El Greco.
