Andre Kertesz’s unpublished photographs arrive in National Museum
The museum bought the pictures, mostly dating to before the artist emigrated from Hungary in 1925, for 6.1 million US dollars, the museum’s director, Laszlo Simon L, told a press conference. The government contributed to the cost of the purchase.
Human Resources Minister Miklos Kasler praised Kertesz (b. 1894- d. 1985) as an internationally acclaimed photographer whose exhibitions have been shown worldwide.
