The activities of the National Gallery Prague are not formed solely of permanent and short-term exhibitions. Its five independent collections – The Collection of the Arts of Asia and Africa, Collection of Prints and Drawings, Collection of Modern and Contemporary Art, Collection of 19th-Century Art and Classical Modernism, and the Collection of Old Masters currently hold over half a million items.
Last year, the gallery’s holdings were enlarged by 255 works of art that were acquired not only through purchases that totalled 18,723 million Czech crowns, but also through donations that account for 145 works of art. The directors and curators of the National Gallery’s collections have selected for you interesting examples of what has been added to their depositories in the past five years. Emphasis has been laid on artworks that have not been exhibited before in the National Gallery. Visitors therefore have the opportunity to enjoy Baroque oil paintings from the early 18th century, Chinese ink painting of the Shanghai School, or prominent Czech video art.
