The Budapest Museum of Fine Arts and the Hungarian National Gallery opened an exhibition of 25 international masterpieces from their collections on large outdoor digital displays in the centre of Madrid. The exhibition dubbed "Art on the Street from Budapest", featuring works by the likes of El Greco, Leonardo, Raphael and Munkacsy, will be on show near the Prado Museum until August 9.
The show is meant to draw attention to the rich collection of internationally important works in the two Budapest museums that merged two years ago.
MTA SZTAKI prepared a smartphone application for the show and those who download this would be entered into a draw to win a trip to Budapest. The mobile application contains further textual and image information for deeper understanding of the pictures, which can be accessed through QR-code reader on the scene. The application is available in the supported software stores under the name of GUIDE@HAND Madrid.
