Schwarzernberský palác review Rate it

The National Gallery relaunched its permanent display of Bohemian Baroque art in spring 2008 at the sprawling Renaissance-era Schwarzenberg Palace. The museum presents around 160 sculptures and 280 paintings from the late 16th to the late 18th centuries. Mathias Braun, the master of Baroque sculpture who contributed some of the Charles Bridge's best ornaments, takes pride of place, along with Maximilian Brokof; great Bohemian painters of the epoque such as Karel Škréta and Peter Brandl also get special attention. Don't miss the stylised work of Antwerp innovator Bartholomaeus Spranger, whose sophisticated colours, elegant eroticism and obscure themes typify mannerism at its best.
