NG Prague – Veletržní Palace

this is one of my favourite galleries in prague, yesterday i spent several hours there and had a great time…i loved looking at the old prints of josef sudek and admired how he created the most beautiful, mysterious photographs from photographing the most basic and ordinary subjects…really inspirational stuff and reassuring, as well, as i am not a fan of massive digital manipulations of photographs..beauty in simplicity…

Art of the 19th, 20th and 21st Centuries

The permanent exhibition of 20th and 21st century art on three floors of Veletržní palác acquaints visitors with the development of Czech and foreign fine art during the course of the last two centuries. The extensive exhibition space in this Functionalist building is home to over 2,300 exhibits and spans an area of 13,500m2. The exhibition presents the work of leading artists in Czech fine art in monographic profiles or in a selection of key works, along with the work of foreign artists. The image of the period is complemented with examples of architecture, furniture, the applied arts, fashion, design and stage design. You will also find photographs, drawings and prints concentrated in graphic cabinets. Alongside celebrated figures we have also included artists who have been neglected in the past or are yet to be discovered. Czech art is shown through qualities which distinguish it from its international counterparts and which make it unique. The objectives of this new conception are emphasised by the inventive architectural design of the individual halls

below are two of my favourite pieces in this gallery – zdenek sykora’s line no.50 and fernand leger’s lovers in the landscape…
