Abstract

The Ceremonial Hall of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, which housed the inaugural ceremony of the Conference, and its wall paintings were showed as typical for the late 19th century concept of nationally minded Historicism and also for the prevailing role of Humanities in their relationship to Science – both of them opposed to the evolution in 20th century. The International Congresses of the History of Art held in Budapest – first in 1896, then in 1969 – mark clearly important moments in our historiography. The second was an occasion for the opening towards Western tradition. It stressed the importance of the regional consciousness in Central Europe – a principle, which is still valid in a politically changed and globalized world.
