This site is dedicated to fine arts in Hungary from the beginnings in the Romanesque period up to the mid 20th century. In spite of the abundance of invaluable artworks, Hungarian fine arts are somewhat underrated outside the country. It is, therefore, the site's objective to present a full range of painting and sculpture in Hungary to a world-wide general public by introducing artists and their most important artworks.

At www.art-hungary.com the Gaudens Pedit Collection is being presented for the very first time. On show are 300 works by 29 artists complete with biographical information.
