Hungary to buy more Munkácsy paintings
According to the confidential document, it was Imre Pákh who offered the collection fr sale to the government. "The significance of the works of art justify setting up a museum as the Pákh collection consists of the world's second largest Munkácsy collection that has been purposely built and scientifically processed over the past decades," the document states.
The Hungarian government paid HUF 3 billion for the Munkácsy painting Golgotha in January.
