The exhibition is organised in collaboration with the Museum of Fine Arts, which is closed for renovation until March 2018, and the National Gallery of Hungary, where part of the Museum of Fine Arts’s collection is temporarily exhibited. To be accompanied by a range of activities, this will be the first event in the Museo Thyssen’s exhibition programme for 2017, the year that marks the 25th anniversary of its opening to the public.
