József Rippl-Rónai: The First Master of Hungarian Modern Painting
József Rippl-Rónai In the Garden

The Modern Gallery presents a collection of some 80 works from the precursor of Hungarian Modernism, József Rippl-Rónai. After studying under the great Hungarian Realist Mihály Munkácsy in Paris, Rippl-Rónai encountered the works of Parisian Modernists, namely that of Paul Gaugin and the Les Nabis group. This colourful and bold collection of oil paintings and watercolours is a spectacular chance to see the work of the great modernist, whose artworks are scarcely found on such a scale in galleries outside of his native Hungary.
