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.
