This exhibition will complement the permanent exhibition Old Masters in the Schwarzenberg Palace, opened in 2019. Together, the exhibitions form a coherent whole, while presenting the artworks in different contexts.
The revitalization of the second and third floor of the existing exhibition in the Sternberg palace follows the historical tradition of exhibiting artworks in this building which, between 1811 and 1871, served as the seat of the Society of Patriotic Friend of the Arts, the predecessor of today's National Gallery. The layout of the exhibition draws attention to the artistic centers where the works were produced and their mutual interconnection. The exhibition places emphasis on a clear, attractive approach to museum presentation and targets visitors of all ages (both local and international).
