The Hungarian National Gallery (Magyar Nemzeti Galéria) is housed in Buda Castle. The collection includes Hungarian works from the Middle Ages to the present. It's particularly strong in late 19th and early 20th c. art. We spent a couple of hours in the museum focusing mostly on those periods. As there were many artists with whom I was unfamiliar, I was happy to see that the museum shop had a guide to the collection. Unfortunately they had sold out of the English version, but I managed to find a copy on Amazon.

The book contains over 200 good photos of works in collection as well as informative commentary about the individual artists, the movements and art colonies with which they were associated and their styles and techniques.

Since photography was not allowed in the museum, I'm delighted to have this guide to remember our visit.

The gallery's website also has many photos and information about the works: http://www.mng.hu/en/ ( )
