Egon Schiele Art Centrum, Cesky Krumlov

4.1
#1 of 10 in Museums in Cesky Krumlov
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.

    The Schiele exhibit is interesting, well documented. The visit also gives the opportunity to discover other artists, I particularly enjoyed the works of Vera Novakova.

    After wandering in the heart of the city is nice, especially for art lovers. Of course, it depends what the exhibition in the premises of just being held. We were happy with the images of 50%.

    I have been looking forward to visiting this museum for over a year. I was not disappointed. Very impressive.

    Great museum if you are a big fan of Egon Schiele. But if you are not, there's still somone else's works inside. It's great in general.

    There are pros and cons to the caffee. The place is really nice in terms of its appearance meeting expectation of every hipster with lots of old battered furniture, paintings and overall artistic atmosphere. The prices however are very overpriced which would be OK if the served products would reflect the price. This however does not happen and my double the ordinary price cake was not tasty at all (felt very cheap) and so did the apple cake we ordered, which was moreover literally still frozen. On tops the toilets are too old and shabby even for hipsters. This is a regular tourist trap.

    Unfortunately the actual museum/gallery was closed until April (!) so I'm reviewing the wonderfully mismatched cafe and museum store, which you can still buy prints of Egon Schiele's works. Very friendly staff and good prints but disappointing as it's a big draw of Cesky Krumlov

    Nice museum in the very center of the town. Interesting the part on Egon Schiele. Exhibitions of other artists inside.
