Prague Castle Picture Gallery
Admission free – every Monday from 4 pm to 6 pm
Description: The collection contains around 400 paintings from the 16th to 18th century.Those pictures on display provide a fair representation of the finest available works of art. For in spite of the country’s chequered history whereby the collection incurred considerable losses the quality of paintings on view can compare favourably with the most significant European art collections. A few works survive from the legendary collection of Rudolph II, but most were lost as spoils of war during the seventeenth century, moved to Vienna or sold – either to the Saxons or in the ‘Josephine’ auction of 1782.
Regarded as the most valuable paintings in the collection are Titian’s Toilet of a Young Lady, Tintoretto’s Flagellation of Christ and Rubens’s The Assembly of the Olympic Gods. There are other major works by artists including Hans von Aachen, Domenico Fetti, Bartolomeo Spranger, Paolo Veronese and Jacopo Bassano.
