Fine arts collection of Székely National Museum at Vigadó

The unique exhibition organized by HAA at Vigadó (exhibition hall on the 5th floor) from 23 August until 30 September is of great cultural historical importance. Although located outside Hungarian borders, in Sepsiszentgyörgy in Transylvania, Székely National Museum is one of the most significant public collections of Hungarian art. No exhibition of a similar scale has been organised in Budapest since the Treaty of Trianon after the First World War. The exhibition features artists who are still quite well-known in Hungary, including Jenő Gyárfás, Sándor Ziffer, János Mattis-Teutsch and Jenő Szervátiusz.
