The Hungarian National Gallery is holding a major exhibition of art from the 1960s, encompassing a period bracketed by two major historic events: the defeat of the 1956 Revolution in Hungary and the Prague Spring of 1968. These were years of political consolidation in Hungary, when the notorious system of classifying cultural works (books, films, etc.) was implemented, known as the “Three Ts”, standing for the Hungarian words (Tiltott, Tűrt, Támogatott) for “Forbidden”, “Tolerated” and “Supported”.

The memorial cabinet exhibition is to mark the centenary of the death of Viktor Madarász (1830–1917), a leading exponent of Hungarian history painting. The exhibition is based on previously unpublished research recently conducted in the archives of Paris; the results shine a new light on the œuvre of this important painter, and allow us to present the most productive period of his career, his Parisian years, with greater historical authenticity than ever before.
