European painting of the 19th century from the Olomouc collections 25/2 – 25/9/2016

25/2 – 25/9/2016 

For the fourth and last time we will make good use of the long-term research into collections of paintings in Olomouc. Following successful exhibitions of Italian, Dutch, and Central European paintings, we will focus on 19th century painters.  The set constitutes the largest part of the ancient art collections of Olomouc. As with the previous picture galleries, the paintings are primarily from the Olomouc Archbishopric’s collections, the museum’s ancient art collection, and a distinguished private collection that has been stored in the Olomouc Museum of Art.

You will see a representative selection of the most prominent works by not only Czech, Moravian, German and Austrian painters, but also French, Italian, and Spanish. To name a few Czech painters: Václav Brožík, Vojtěch Hynais, Antonín Chittussi, Julius Mařák, Antonín Slavíček, Antonín Hudeček, Luděk Marolda, and Alfons Mucha. The range of themes is also very rich: landscapes, vedute, still life, biblical, mythological, historical, genre scenes, portraits, and allegories.

We will issue a scholarly exhibition catalogue.
