Art Nouveau Artefacts

Thanks to planned acquisition, the Museum of Applied Arts is proud to own a unique Art Nouveau collection which represents both the Hungarian and European development of this style. The collection's special value is not originated in the quantity of the objects but that the majority was purchased as contemporary artefacts when the new style was born and art nouveau was flourishing around 1900. In founding this collection, Jenő Radisics (1856-1917) had a dominant role, who was the director of the museum from 1897 until his death.
