Ludwig Museum (Museum of Contemporary Art)
The Ludwig Museum – Museum of Contemporary Art began to form its impressive collection in 1989 when Peter and Irene Ludwig donated as many as 70 examples of international art works to be housed in the museum. Later in 1991 the collection grew again with a further donation of 95 exhibits, expanding again for a third time in 1996. The collection consists of pieces documenting international and European trends between the 1960’s and 1980’s as well as changes in Hungarian art at the turn of a new decade in the 1990’s. The collection primarily focuses on displaying artwork of Central Eastern European artists such as Hungarian, Slovak, Czech and Romanian artists. Other notable pieces amongst the collection are works by famous international artists such as David Hockney, Tome Wesselman, Richard Estes and Pablo Picasso.
