Life in an Asian Palace: Love, luxury and idleness
Curator: Petra Polláková
The Collection of Oriental Art of the National Gallery in Prague has prepared another small theme-based exhibition in the premises of the permanent exhibition in the Kinský Palace. This exhibition follows In the Dragon's Claws and links different spheres of Asian art with the theme of palace life focusing on love, luxury and idleness. The 19th-century Iranian oil painting Pair of Lovers serves as the project's emblem, and appears on the title page of the catalogue and on the exhibition posters. The painting is part of the permanent Asian Art exhibition on the first floor of the Kinský Palace.
