Last year, the first part of the Out of the Warehouse! exhibition series presented the works of women artists from the 19th century at the Budapest Picture Gallery, and for the current exhibition we have selected works from between 1900 and 1950.

The sheer volume of the objects shows that the first half of the 20th century is a completely new era, with many more works by women artists than before. We also have a large collection of works by Mariska Undi, Jolán Gross Bettelheim and Margitta Gráber, which is why we have more of them in this exhibition. The sculptures and prints of Mária Kósa, an artist with a unique voice, now completely forgotten, are waiting to be discovered.

The exhibition includes nearly a hundred works by twenty-seven women artists – oil paintings, watercolours, drawings, reproductions of prints and sculptures. The names of many of these women may be unfamiliar to today’s visitor, even though they have dedicated their lives to art. This exhibition is an opportunity to discover them.
