The exhibition’s concept will be based on important themes, which are characteristic for the art of the given period (portrait, landscape, history, religion etc.). This approach will make it possible to display also the artworks housed in the National Gallery Prague that have never been shown at exhibitions, although they represent major examples of contemporary art, such as those by Caspar David Friedrich, Lovis Corinth, Max Klinger, Ivan Konstantinovich Aivazovsky, Anton Romak and many others.
The exhibition also includes paintings by Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele, Edvard Munch and the artworks from the so-called French Collection,which has so far been exhibited separately, e.g. those by Eugen Delacroix, Camilla Corot, Paul Gauguin, Vincent van Gogh, Pablo Picasso and André Derain.
Side by side, sculptures by Václav Levý, Josef Václav Myslbek, Josef Mařatka, Ladislav Šaloun, František Bílek, Stanislav Sucharda, Michael Powolny, Constantin Meunier and Auguste Rodin will be displayed. Owing to this concept, Czech or Central European art will be presented in the international context for the first time.
