The largest museum collection of winged altars, panel paintings and wooden sculptures from the Kingdom of Hungary.
In the former throne-room of the palace and two connected rooms a total of fifteen largely complete winged altarpieces are on display, along with numerous component parts of such altarpieces, mainly from the early 16th century.
Our collection of stone carvings preserves the earliest reminiscences owned by the Hungarian National Gallery: fragments of sculptures, architectural carvings with an artistic quality and fragments of tombs from the beginnings of carving in Hungary in the 11th century to 1526.
The permanent exhibition of late renaissance and baroque art surveys the art of the Hungarian Kingdom and Central Europe between 1550 and 1800, beginning with mannerist works made in Vienna and Prague in the years around 1600.
As a new thematic unit at our permanent exhibition, we present white marble statues that exemplify types of nude representation, made during the period from the turn of the last century to the 1920s.
The re-organised permanent exhibition showcasing Hungarian fine art from 1810 to 1900 is displayed in the most impressive halls on the first floor of the Gallery.
The œuvre of Mihály Munkácsy is presented in a separate line of rooms along with the art of Hungarian painters of realist tendencies, following in his footsteps.
The most decisive artists and endeavours from the period between the turn of the century and the end of World War II.
The title of our exhibition presenting Hungarian art after 1945 was inspired by one of György Galántai’s sculpture Shifts from 1989.
