Owner description: The paintings of the 20th-century Hungarian expatriate Tivadar Csontvary Kosztka are featured.

This is a quirky art museum, devoted to an artist who created his work at the margins of society, and was frustrated by his inability to be recognized for his greatness. Frankly, the artistic quality of some of the work is at least debatable, but the story of the artist is fascinating.

painings are great and impactful, but explanations are not so, need to go prepared or buy a guidebook.Do not miss the drawings, they tell you much about the creation process

Really interesting. An artist who I was not familiar with but apparently should be. Would have been really nice to have some more in depth explanations in English. The biography was useful though.
Free entry because it was a public holiday.

The life history of this painter is so interesting so be sure to read it before viewing pictures. The paintings are massive and colorful with a variety of subject matter. I was impressed and wanted to know more.

Csontvary is the second best painter of our age - according to Dali, who is obviously the number one in his own opinion :). The museum exhibits some of his best works. Impressive paintings, visiting recommended.
