This article discusses the emergence of Budapest as an art center as an integral part of the greater project of the making of the Hungarian capital after the Compromise of 1867. In the political setup of the Dual Monarchy, major cultural institutions were founded and a distinct urban culture, centered around cafés, was born in Budapest. It was there that actual or potential patrons, as well as receptive audiences, of the arts were to be found, which in turn led the city to also become a magnet for artists. "Artists' tables," subject to great public attention and the source of coffeehouses' reputations, became sites of casual networking and the cultivation of personal relationships between artists, patrons, and various mediators in the arts.
