Csontvary Kosztka Tivadar exhibition in Szeged and Szentes

Forty of Csontvary Kosztka Tivadar’s paintings can be seen in Szeged Mora Ferenc Museum and Szentes, from 14th October until the middle of December.

It is a unique event as apart from two other exhibitions, one in 1994 and the other last year in Istanbul, these paintings could not have been seen in any other places than Pecs since the opening of Csontvary Museum in 1974 there. You can ask why Szeged and Szentes are the places where his works are exhibited.

During the Great Flood of Szeged in 1879 Csontvary took an active part in helping and as originally he wanted to be a pharmacist, he worked in a pharmacy in Szentes. Seeing the destruction in Szeged might have pushed him in the direction of becoming an artist.

Ticket prices are 1500 HUF for adults and 900 HUF for students and pensioners. There is special family ticket for 2 adults and maximum3 children for 2900 HUF. The museum in Szegen is open every day from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. The museum is closed on Mondays. In Szentes the opening hours are from Tuesday to Friday 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 12 a.m. Prices are lower than in Szeged, 700 HUF for adults, 400 HUF for students and pensioners and the family ticket is only 1200 HUF.
