Pinter Gallery and Auction House is one of the leading auctioneers in Hungary. Located on Falk Miksa Street in Budapest, an area known for its antique stores and established galleries, Pinter Gallery offers classical, modern, and contemporary art.
The venue was open to public in 1991 and grown significantly through over the time, becoming one of the largest galleries in Europe. More then a dozen rooms of the three floor level space suit perfectly for exhibitions, auctions, lectures and art events, even if they are held at the same time. Since 2012 Pinter auctions are also available online.
The Pinter’s vast collection includes paintings, photographs, furnitures, sculptures, as well as pieces of decorative and applied arts from the Renaissance era to the present day.
