To celebrate 150 years of Japan-Hungary diplomatic relations, two of Hungary’s largest museums — the Museum of Fine Arts, Budapest and the Hungarian National Gallery — are bringing works to Japan for the first time in 25 years.

Comprising 130 masterpieces, this exhibition traces art from the Renaissance to the early 20th century, with a focus on European and Hungarian paintings, drawings and sculpture. Highlights include masterpieces by Lucas Cranach (1472-1553), Titian (1488/90-1576), El Greco (1541-1614), Renoir (1841-1919) and Monet (1840-1926), and others by 18th- and 19th-century Hungarian artists.
