If you want to have a look over the artistic part of the city, you will propably need to have a look at the Museums of Prague. There are plenty of them here, but I would like to introduce you to the best of them.

Monet - Warhol

One of the famous European collections of Rita and Herbert Batliner, from the Albertina Museum in Vienna, ïs presented at the National Gallery in Prague - Collection of Modern and Contemporary Art - Veletržní Palace.

At this exhibition we can find up to 80 works of art made by the great personalities of the modern European and American scene.

The exhibition includes some of the exceptional works such as Monet's famous Water Lilies, paintings by other French artists such as Henri Matisse and Pierre Bonnard, as well as pieces of art by German expressionists and representatives of the Russian avant-garde and surrealism. Post-war art is also represented by the  names of artists such as Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Francis Bacon and Yves Klein.

Jan Štursa – sculpture drawings

  • Place: Veletržní Palace ,  Dukelských hrdinů 47, Prague 7
  • Date: 21.09.2010 - 27.03.2011
  • Type: Exhibition  

The representative selection of sculpture drawings by Jan Štursa (1880–1925) is presented at the Veletrzni Palace as well. The exhibition is dedicated to the 130th anniversary of birth of the major founder of Czech modern sculpture. For Štursa, the human figure was a primary motif, as is shown by the large set of drawings chosen from more than 600 works of the National Gallery in Prague. They are directly related to Štursa’s sculpture, showing his sense of volume, fullness and vivacity. In his early work, he responded to the reverberations of Art Nouveau symbolism and sensual depictions of the female form. Later he developed cubism-influenced figural motifs and, despite his traumatizing war experience, moved toward vital civilism.

Museum of Communism

  • Place:  Na Prikope 10, Prague 1
  • Date: Permanent exhibition
  • Type: Exhibition  "Communism- the Dream, the Reality, and the Nightmare"

This is the most famous museum in Prague devoted to a system established in the sphere of the former Soviet Union. The original items and installations containing authentic artefacts are shown in the three main rooms. The exhibition concentrates on the totalitarian regime from the February coup in 1948 to its rapid collapse in November 1989. Immersive factories, a historical schoolroom, an Interrogation Room, or the video clips in the Television Time Machine are all part of the experience.
