The Museum of Fine Arts in Budapest and the Hungarian National Gallery have graciously loaned a number of artworks for an exhibition you’ll be disappointed to miss. Details here.

Although it’s still pretty far away, Madrid is closer to the United States than Budapest. Opened on February 18 and on view through May 28, “From the Renaissance to the Avant-Garde” is a brilliant display of masterworks from the Museum of Fine Arts in Budapest and the Hungarian National Gallery at Madrid’s Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza.

The exhibition presents about 90 masterworks, including rarely seen works by Albrecht Dürer, Raphael, Annibale Caracci, Leonardo da Vinci, Diego Velázquez, and Peter Paul Rubens.

To learn more, visit the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza.
