The exhibition’s concept is based on important themes characteristic for the art of the given period (portrait, landscape, history, religion etc.). Displayed are 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 shows the artworks from the so-called French Collection, which have always been displayed separately, e.g. those by Eugène Delacroix, Camille Corot, Paul Gauguin, Vincent van Gogh or Pablo Picasso and André Derain. Visitors can see also sculptures by Václav Levý, Josef Václav Myslbek, Josef Mařatka, Ladislav Šaloun, František Bílek, Stanislav Sucharda, Michael Powolny, Constantin Meunier and Auguste Rodin. Owing to this concept, Czech or Central European art will be presented in the international context for the first time.
