The National Gallery in Prague - The Collection of Drawings and Prints

in detail

The core of the collection is old prints by German, Dutch, French, and Italian engravers of the 16th to 18th centuries, including works by Dürer, Rembrandt, Callot, and Piranesi. French graphic art of the 19th century and the first third of the 20th century is also well represented - there are works by Delacroix, Daumier, Gauguin, Toulouse-Lautrec, Picasso, Derain, and Matisse. The highlights of the collection of modern Czech graphic art include the Art Nouveau and Symbolist works of art (such as those by Alfons Mucha, Max Svabinský, Frantiaek Bílek, Frantiaek Kupka and Josef Váchal) and those from the Cubist and Expressionist periods (Emil Filla, Josef Capek, Václav Spála).

Due to the material used in these works of art (paper) and techniques employed, they have to be carefully protected. Consequently, drawings and prints are displayed only in temporary exhibitions.
