The protagonist of Picturesque Epochs is Mária Gánóczy (1927-), a painter and a film aficionado who comes from a family of female artists as far back as her great-grandparents. She brought up nine children with her husband József Breznay (1916-2012), a fellow painter. Gánóczy's films and paintings immortalised the checkered history of Central Europe.

Forgács’s works see representative personal and historical layering by using the most varying film tools and textures: paintings, faded photos, 8-mm film footages, news sections, handwritten documents and radio archives, as well as present-day HD interview recordings. Picturesque Epochs combines art, family papers and the distinctive features and iconic turns of different eras in this intimate yet extensive saga.
