    Szentendre was discovered by the painters of the era in 1926. Within a short period of time many artists have settled down here, first the Szentendre Artists’ Colony, then the Association of Painters in Szentendre was founded. The city on the Danube became the city of painters
    Depicting the view of the cities in which artists’ colonies work is an old tradition in art.
    The rooftops of Szentendre became symbols and steering-compasses of the city, connecting classic modern tradition with contemporary endeavours. The exhibition focuses on one of the main topics of the city’s artists: city views, street views and the rooftops as motifs. In the static street views we can discover well-known buildings and silhouettes, as they stand model in a system of compositions.
