Hungarian Art: A Century of Rebellion & Revival

Oct. 18, 2016-Jan. 8, 2017
Boca Raton Museum of Art

This exhibition of art from Budapest includes works of art by Hungarian artists, including such figures as André Kertész and László Moholy-Nagy, and provides a fascinating microcosm of the social and political turmoil that was raging across Europe, from the late 19th century, through WWI and WWII to the collapse of the Soviet Era, giving rise to the birth of the avant-garde.

This exhibition is part of a suite of four exhibitions collectively entitled The Art of Hungary, which is made possible by the Museum’s Exhibition Leadership Fund with major support generously provided by the Estate of Ruth Feigl, Jody H. & Martin Grass, Dalia & Duane Stiller, Lisette Model Foundation, Nancy G. Brinker, Quinnipiac University’s Central European Institute, The Hungary Initiatives Foundation, Kathy & Leslie Megyeri, and the Museum’s Friends Auxiliary.
