The Gaudens Pedit Collection is the most comprehensive and meaningful document on Hungarian art at the time of the country's opening to the West. The works date from the beginning of the 1980s up until the middle of the 1990s. The collection was built up between 1988 and 1994 by Christoph Achammer, Michael Neubauer, Gaudens Pedit,
Kurt Sailer and Alexander Svoboda.
For the collective achievement in building up the collection and the activities involved in promoting Hungarian art Gaudens Pedit was presented with the 'Pro Cultura Hungarica'
in 1997 by the Hungarian Ministry of Culture, for special achievements in the field of art.
