Egon Schiele Art Centrum, Cesky Krumlov

(4.1/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web)
Learn more about the life and art of a major figurative painter of the early 20th century and protege of Gustav Klimt at Egon Schiele Art Centrum. Apart from paintings and drawings, the center houses an exhibit about the artist's life and work, including childhood photographs, sketchbooks, his studio furniture, and a plaster death mask. His nude portraits are rich in anatomical detail and were controversial at the time, forcing the artist to leave town after only two years. A big painted city map, in a small room on the top floor, shows the locations of the various landscapes in Schiele's paintings. Amenities include a cafe and a shop selling books, posters, postcards, and T-shirts.

  • If you are into art, this is a very good place. I am lucky enough to see Otto Placht collections and they are all captivating. 
  • If there is some time; should you necessarily look to learn something of the contemporary era of Wolfgang Schiele. Also exhibits of other artists can be admired.

  • One learns much about Egon Schiele and his somewhat controversial life, unfortunately there are no original oil there images - they're all in Vienna, also Gauguin-like contemporary of Schiele is offered and some contemporary painting - staff very committed!

  • Superb pernament exposition of Egon Schiele. Didn't like Otto Placht that much, but the amount of his works displayed was overwhelming.
  • Great little cafe. Comfy (if strange) interior. Beautiful terrace. VERY odd concrete furniture on the street. Free wifi and there is a children's playroom.
  • actually my score is 3.5. well the museum is really unique but no enough to see Egon's pictures I expected. all staffs were really nice.
  • It was a little bit boring, there were just a few of Schiele.
  • Amazing
