In mid-September, an exhibition of works by one of the most significant figures of Hungarian visual art opened at the Hungarian National Gallery.

The exhibition showcasing the extremely versatile work of János Vaszary is a curiosity, if only because 24 out of the presented 70 paintings were previously unknown to the public as well as to professionals. The paintings encompass almost every phase of Vaszary’s oeuvre, from his early impressionistic period to his expressive compositions, from his Art Deco style in Paris to his Danube Promenade pictures and seaside scenes with a Mediterranean ambiance.
