VERNISSAGE: The library and music archive of Karl of Lichtenstein-Castelcorn

NEWS | 7. 6. 2018

Two new exhibitions start on Thursday 7th June at 4 pm in Kroměříž Chateau. 

Cabinet of Music II.
Archdiocesan Museum of Kroměříž
(stable exhibition)

The time of the reign of Emperor Leopold I is connected with the work of Olomouc Bishop Charles II. from Liechtenstein-Castelcorna to the chateau of Kroměříž, whose courtyard was used by Pavel Josef Vejvanovský and Heinrich Ignaz Franz Biber. The new exhibition gives visitors the opportunity to see the form of music at the Imperial Court, which set the direction and determined the taste of music, in the context of the Episcopal Court reflecting all the artistic aspects of the time and its shot far beyond the regional boundaries. On selected exhibitions, it will be possible to see how the influence of the Imperial Court was spread and copied by its courts of religious and secular dignitaries.

Library of Bishop Karel of Lichtenstein-Castelcorn
Archdiocesan Museum of Kroměříž

The exhibition together with the catalog will present the most interesting books from Bishop Lichtensteins collection. In addition to the content, the library will also familiarize the visitor with their own process of acquiring books, binding and storing them. Pandans to bound books will be the presented graphic sheets, which were previously an integral part of the library.
