Picasso exhibition in full swing at Hungarian National Gallery

'Picasso – Transfigurations, 1895-1972' will be on display until August 28, 2016

The largest-ever collection of Picasso artwork is currently on exhibition at the Hungarian National Gallery.

More than 100 years since the last Picasso collection was viewed in Hungary, 'Picasso – Transfigurations, 1895-1972' will be on display until August 28, 2016.

The late Spanish artist is regarded as one of the greatest and most influential of the 20th century. He is known for his world renowned paintings, co-founding the Cubist-movement, the invention of constructed sculpturing and the co-invention of collage.

The exhibition showcases a large-scale collection of his work, including “The Barefoot Girl” he painted at the age of 14 as well as a piece he completed just a year before his death.

Most of the works are on loan from the Picasso Museum in Paris, with pieces from museums in Jerusalem, Basel, Bern and Moscow, as well as pieces from Hungarian public collections.
