Gustav Klimt
Gustav Klimt Budapest

A new exhbition has just been opened in the Museum of Fine Arts. It is named “Nuda Veritas. Gustav Klimt and the Origins of the Vienna Secession 1895–1905.” This will for sure be an exhibition bringing many tourists to Budapest, but it will also draw people from Hungary to Budapest.  On the official homepage of the Museum of Fine Arts we can read that “the spiritual leader and first president of the Vienna Secession, Gustav Klimt, will be accorded a highlighted place in the exhibition, which will not only display his significant paintings, such as Nuda Veritas – “naked truth”, included in the title of the exhibition, but also a group of his drawings evocative of a work that has not survived but which represented an important phase of his artistic career: the three murals symbolising the faculties of the University of Vienna. ”

I guess it is only to get to the museum and check it out, at least if you are interested.
