Portmoneum Litomyšl

Portmoneum: The fascinating graphic art of Josef Váchal

The former home of art lover Josef Portmon in Litomyšl is the best example of the wealth of work produced by notable graphic artist, Josef Váchal, who in his own lifetime was regarded as a bit of an eccentric; his mystical works were only truly appreciated after he died. In the 1920s he created his masterpiece – the Portmoneum – where you will see wall frescos, which Váchal used to decorate two rooms, two carved bookcases and other weird and wonderful furniture. He adorned the walls and ceiling with various ornamentation as well as demons, ghosts, imps and other creatures, biblical scenes and signs of the zodiac. Come and see this impressive spectacle for yourself.
