The Museum of Fine Arts bought a Cezanne watercolor at Christie’s New York auction late last year.
According to 444, László Baán, Director of the Museum of Fine Arts, said that the purchase of the work, which was created in 1890, was supported by the Hungarian government: it was bought at the auction for 750,000 dollars (227 million forints).
The watercolor can be seen until February 13th in the exhibition “Cezanne to Malevich. Arcadia to Abstraction” at the Fine Arts.
