Letters, photos and documents from the Artist Colony of Nagybánya

The Nagybánya Artist Colony, established in 1896, has had a major impact on modern Hungarian art in the first half of the 20th century. In the collection of the Archives there are a large number of written and visual documents (such as posters, letters, postcards, photographs, small prints, newspapers) written by masters and students of this outstanding painting school. Below, we have compiled a selection that gives a glimpse into the life of the colony from the foundation until the middle of the century.
