The Museum of Fine Arts has a fine exhibition going currently named: “El Greco to Rippl-Rónai.” This is an exhibition is a tribute to Marcell Jánoshalmi Nemes who was one of the most significant art collectors in early twentieth-century Hungary, as well as one of its most contradictory figures, whose extensive activities as both an art patron and collector became legendary during his own lifetime.

At the exhibition you can see treasured pieces of Nemes’s former El Greco collection, and also wroks from Mihály Munkácsy, Károly Ferenczy, József Rippl-Rónai, Pál Szinyei Merse, Béla Uitz, Károly Kernstok and János Vaszary.
