This openly licensed selection of Impressionist paintings from the late-19th to early-20th century focuses on the works of Ladislav Mednyánszky (1852-1919). The collection of 187 paintings includes landscapes and portrayals of peasants, friends, family and workmen.

Mednyánsky was born in the north-eastern part of the Kingdom of Hungary, now Slovakia, an area that is brought to life in many of his paintings. These works were donated to the Slovak National Gallery by his niece Margita Czóbel in 1972.
