Visit Schwarzenberg Palace before its closure
Do not miss the chance to visit the Schwarzenberg Palace before January 7, 2019, when it will be closed for a few months for renovations and preparation of the new permanent exhibition. It will open again to the public in autumn 2019.
The Schwarzenberg Palace is home to a permanent exhibition Art from the Rudolfine Era to the Baroque in Bohemia. The extensive exposition of Bohemian Baroque art is preceded by a collection of Mannerist masterpieces created for the Prague court of Emperor Rudolf II. These holdings include the works of many of the most prominent artists from the Emperor’s closest circle: Bartholomeus Spranger, Hans von Aachen, Roelant Savery, Hans Mont and Adriaen de Vries. Baroque art is represented in a rich array of artworks by the most significant exponents of the Bohemian Baroque – Peter Brandl, Matthias Bernard Braun, Karel Škréta, Michael Leopold Willmann and Jan Kupecký. The palace also houses a Graphic Cabinet and a tactile display.
