Last Chance to See 19th-century Art at the Prague National Gallery

Highlights

The National Gallery in Prague will close down the exhibition of 19th-century Art from Classicism to Romanticism in the Salm Palace by early October. The exhibition presents major paintings and sculptures from classicism to romanticism. The artworks by key figures of Czech art complement the central European context of Austrian and German artists headed by Caspar David Friedrich.

The visitors now have the last chance to get acquainted with the artworks by the Mánes family, Adolf Kosárek, and Josef Navrátil, which were lately enriched with the recently acquired painting by Jaroslav Čermák. In the upcoming years, the collection of 19th-century artworks, which are currently exhibited in the Salm Palace, will be displayed at a new exhibition in the Trade Fair Palace presenting Czech works dating from the 19th, 20th and  21st centuries in an international context.
