Csontvary was not a mainstream artist, but deserves to be better known worldwide. This museum houses his most famous paintings - they are huge and unforgettable. On entering the building, it seemed at first that the rooms were too dim. But that was done on...More

Csontvary’s works were almost lost as his heirs wanted to sell the good quality canvas as tarpaulins. In the very last moment his paintings were bought by a young architect, Gedeon Gerloczy and saved in his apartment. Finally, most of Csontvary’s peculiar pictures were moved...More

Please take note that this museum is now closed until at least February 2016. Its paintings have been transferred for the Csontváry Kosztka Exhibition opening in Budapest in July 2015.

A nice museum with helpful staff but we only found out there that Csontváry is not going to be one of our favorite artist. Look up his paintings before visiting.

We had never heard of Csontvary but decided to see the collection since we had extra time. I should add that while I appreciate art I am a long way from a connoisseur. The exhibit blew me away with its vivid colors and 3-D effect....More
