In the beginning of the 20th century, Miksa Roth established a workshop renowned for reviving glass and mosaic art in Hungary.

After first learning the craft from his father, Roth founded his own workshop and soon received a number of commissions for churches, cafes and private homes.

His work can still be found all across Europe, and in Mexico's national theater.

"If you want to understand the modern Budapest in terms of architecture, in terms of design. You have to deal with Roth Miksa as well, because his work is of modern phase of Budapest," said Judit Hammerstein, director general of Balassi Institute.

"If you visit our capital, the Hungarian capital, Budapest. If you visit the big public buildings from the last century, from the end of last century. You can find everywhere, in the National Academy of Sciences or in the building of Hungarian Parliament."

The exhibition wraps up on Friday. Other events during the culture week include a photo exhibition from Hungarian artist Flora Borsi and talks about Hungarian architecture design and literature.
