It is not often to see work by great artists next to each other. The 'Budapest' exhibition at Royal Academy of Arts it's something that you can't miss, within presented art works, all by great masters there are paintings by Chagall, Schiele and Picasso hang in one room next to each other. While you are there it's worth to have a look on the exhibition The new thing under the sun which shows quite powerful work by Dorota Jurczak which you can see below
