Egon Schiele Art Centrum, Cesky Krumlov
(4.1/5 based on 180+ 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.

  • Our route also includes Vienna, where we expected find works of this artists, of which is admirer our daughter... which was our surprise to the discover this Center, as was that his mother is native of this city, and the grew up admiring this place, which was its inspiration. This Center has, in addition to the exhibition, an excellent sale of sheets and postcards of this artist (for sale in this place, as we do not find anything of Schiele elsewhere), with excellent packing for transportation. The Museum section is not very extensive, but the building is beautiful, worth to be visited.

  • 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
