Old Masters

A new permanent exhibition of the Collection of Old Masters in Schwarzenberg Palace

Sep 13 2019 - Dec 31 2020
The exhibition Old Masters in the Schwarzenberg Palace presents selected key artworks from the Collection of Old Masters (Hans von Aachen, Petr Brandl, Matthias Bernard Braun, Lucas Cranach, Adriaen de Vries, Albrecht Dürer, El Greco, Francisco José Goya, Hans Holbein, Jan Gossaert, also known as Jan Mabuse, Rembrandt van Rijn, Jusepe de Ribera, Peter Paul Rubens, Bartholomaeus Spranger, Karel Škréta, Simon Vouet, Michael Leopold Willmann and others).
The display concentrates on the period between the 16th and 18th centuries and the pre-Renaissance tendencies in Gothic and Antiquity art as inspirational stimuli for Renaissance and Baroque art. The exhibition’s architectural concept follows this plan: the ground floor is its “prologue”, the first and second floors look like a thematic panorama of Renaissance and Baroque art and the loft focuses on the collecting activities, painting and sculpture, sketches and cabinet painting in new contexts.
