The Hungarian University of Fine Arts and the collection was funded in 1871. Due to the professional and precise acquisition, by the turning of the 19th and 20th century an exceptional collection emerged. Not only the essential academic teaching materials and documents, but also different special collections established: photographs, posters and lithographs, graphics collection, japanese woodcuts and sample sheets, 19th century ornamental sample sheets, etc. These items are not only relics of the past educational methods but art pieces too. The collection of the university reflects all areas that are requisite in the academic art education.
