This year Ernst Museum as usually will hold the annual exhibition for 2012 Derkovits scholars. The exhibition will take place from April 10 to 22, and will feature several young emerging Hungarian artists, who will be selected by a jury several days prior the exhibition.

The selection of several artists by the jury will take place in the begging of April.
Derkovits Gyula is a Hungarian painted of the beginning of 20th century. He went through the first world war, and as many painters of the epoch, his works reflected the influence of the German expressionism. Rather shocking and sensitive, Derkovits’ artworks are strongly social and political.
At the legacy of Gyula, the artworks granted a scholarship provide a complex picture of artistic dilemmas and phenomenon which are carried in minds of young artists.
