The Szépművészeti Múzeum (Museum of Fine Arts) was established in 1906 as the unified centre for the collection and exhibition of non-Hungarian art in Budapest. Designed by Albert Schickedanz and Fülöp Herzog, the museum building showcases an ecclectic range of architectural styles, from Neo-Classical to the museum's Doric, Ionic, Romanesque, Renaissance and Baroque halls, each reflecting the art displayed within. While the museum is closed for renovation (opening again in autumn 2018), a selection from the permanent collection, ranging in time from antiquity to the early 20th century, is now on display at the Hungarian National Gallery.
