List of offers:

The Egon Schiele Art Centrum owes its foundation in 1992/93 to the private initiative of three individuals who recognized the unique atmosphere after the fall of the Iron Curtain between the Eastern and Western Europe and have significantly contributed to the idea of creation of an international art center in one of Europe's loveliest Renaissance towns. The Egon Schiele Art Centrum houses an exhibition documenting the life and work of Egon Schiele as well as a permanent exhibition of his works. In addition, various rotating exhibits of both classical 20th century and contemporary art take place in the Centrum covering an area of 3000 sq.m. Another part of the museum has been developed into large art studios for long-term residing young artists coming from both Eastern and Western Europe. Art studios are leased on a 10-year basis to Ministries of Culture or various national art institutions. A writers' suite is also available. The Museum also houses a well-stocked Museum shop and a traditional café serving assorted Czech specialties and catering to both artists and art lovers alike. Since its opening in 1993, the Egon Schiele Art Centrum has become an internationally recognized and frequently visited institution. This is an entirely private initiative, its success stemming from a few individuals' immense dedication and funding from various sponsors, foreign grants and friends.

..JOSEF VÁCHAL: extended until 31.1.2016

Josef Váchal: Virgin Forest, linocut, 1921

Josef Váchal (1884-1969)
paintings, drawings, prints, books, woodcuts

An extensive Josef Váchal exhibition, installed over an area of 1000m2 demonstrates his artistic development with an emphasis on the less frequently presented and even underrated part of his work i.e. bookplates, where artistic development, changing techniques, styles and themes are particularly striking in a limited space. It is a retrospective exhibition for the general public which has the artistic and didactic aim of presenting cycles of woodcuts from the 1910s, a collection of oil paintings from the 1920s, a set of drawings from the 1940s, but also examples of wood carvings and Váchal’s books. The best known work, that experts rank amongst the most significant works of the 20th century, will also be exhibited - The Dying and Romantic Šumava Forest. This Váchal work is not only an artistic gem on account of its large woodcuts that evoke the impression of paintings, but the same time it is also a matter of a significant cultural-historic and scientific work.
