Come to the Kinský Palace to see unique works by renowned Impressionists such as Claude Monet, Edgar Degas, Auguste Renoir, Camille Pissarro, Berthe Morisot, Alfred Sisley, Paul Gauguin and others. These artists will surely prove to you that Impressionism still has its unwavering luxurius charm!
An opportunity like this presents itself to you in Prague for the first time - and who knows, maybe for the last time too!
"I dare say that you won't be able to see such a complex collection of French Impressionism in the Czech Republic any time soon,"
says the exhibition curator Petr Šámal and explains:
“Museums are usually reluctant to lend artworks of the most famous authors. Sometimes negotiating a lease of a single painting can take months to years, and some chef d'oeuvres never even leave their place.”
The French Impressionism exhibition is organized in collaboration with the Danish state art museum Ordrupgaard, which obtained these masterpieces from one of the most prominent entrepreneurs of his time, Wilhelm Hansen.
Now it is making them available to visitors in Central Europe for the first time in history. Prior to Prague, they have been exhibited only in France, Canada and Switzerland.
Collector Hansen fell in love with Impressionism. How about you?
In 1916, the entrepreneur Hansen had the unique opportunity to buy a number of interesting pieces of art on his travels to Paris. Since then, his collection has grown considerably. Are you wondering what was the first luxury painting he purchased? It was Monet's Waterloo Bridge.
