Ostrava Gallery of Fine Art – a high quality collection of global names
Come and meet with beauty and have a rest from the bustle of the industrial city. You will see works by old masters such as Dürer, Cranach, Aachen and Hollar. The Viennese Art Nouveau is also represented here (Klimt) as well as important Russian artists (Repin, Šiškin). The gallery also boasts works of Czech modern art. The gallery, established back in 1922, is nowadays based in a breathtaking Functionalist building dating back to 1926, which was designed by the architects Fiala and Wallenfels, pupils of the founder of Czech modern art Jan Kotěra. The Ostrava Gallery is one of the five most important institutions which are active in creation of art collections in the Czech Republic.
