National Gallery in Prague, Prague

(4.5/5 based on 900+ reviews on the web)
National Gallery in Prague is a series of 20 monumental artwork--inspired by the mythology and history of the Slavs--by famous Art Nouveau painter Alfons Mucha. He worked on the pieces between 1911 and 1926, thanks to the support of wealthy Chicago businessperson and philanthropist Richard Crane. In his paintings, you can see the original homeland of Slavs, the battle of Grunwald, Holy Mount Athos, the coronation of the Serbian Tsar Stefan Dusan, the apotheosis of the Slavs, and other key episodes from the Slavic past. Mucha and Crane officially presented the series to the city of Prague as a gift to the nation on the 10th anniversary of its independence in 1928.

  • Light, space, shape, and design of the building boast clarity and beauty of a functional building which must have been groundbreaking for its time. On some corners factory similar to a gigantic light air courtyard as the London Science Museum plain, then again light bright and chic in the Baden-Baden Burda Museum. But everywhere soberly stylish like Bauhaus factories. A copy and a subsidiary of Dessau. For me the zeitloseste building for contemporary art.
