A painting by Auguste Renoir was unveiled in presence of Prime Minister Viktor Orbán in the new complex of the National Restoration and Storage Centre (OMRRK) in Budapest on Tuesday.

The Female Nude Lying was recently by the Hungarian state for the Budapest Fine Arts Museum, Orbán said.

The OMRRK is part of the Liget Project, a new museum quarter in City Park.
The storage centre that contains tens of thousands of artefacts from three museums is among the world’s top facilities in terms of its size and quality, he said.

The Renoir was purchased for 12.3 million dollars and will be put on display in the Fine Arts Museum from May 24.
