On account o f the poor state o f Hungar­ ian art it was mostly the works o f Austrian artists that were obtained and sold, foreign pieces were even featured in the repro­ ductions printed for members. Hence the Pest Arts Association was actually enriching the Austrian arts trade. As the program o f national art gained ground, dissatisfaction with the activities o f the Arts Association grew. In 1859 artists and patrons began a debate concerning the creation o f a society o f a different char­ acter with the intention o f promoting Hungarian art.

Artists entered them individually, and their work was judged by a neutral committee o f recognized experts, which also made the decisions concerning government prizes. They were directed by the directors o f the 59 mmm~ m ' Exhibition o f Works o f An put in publicOwnership, W9 Mucsarnok, Elek Petrovics and later Denes Csdnky.
