This museum offers a fantastic collection of European and Czech art of the late 19th to 21st century. It possesses some of the best Picasso's to be seen in the world and what I found to be the most beautiful & largest Renoir I've ever laid eyes on.
When you enter on the 4th floor (the suggestion is to start at the top in the permanent collection and move downwards to the temporary exhibitions), it seems quite small as the rooms are divided and in fact turn around a central atrium (which cannot be seen). It only seems that there is one more room beyond this one, but there is always another.
The organisation is by theme rather than by painter or period. Thus night pictures in moonlight will be found together, as will be portraits or scenery. Paintings by Czech artists who are little known outside the country, are hung beside the the most internationally well-known artists. In this way the county's artists are placed in their international context and the foreign visitor can learn who these artists are and appreciate their work.
In a second type of organisation, we find works of Czech artists from specific areas & cities of the country, Moravia, Bohemia, Brno ...
The lower floors offer temporary exhibits. We had the luck to be graced with an exhibit of Gebauer's work and the skulpture of Sacher.
On the ground floor was exhibited the works that had been shown in various years of the Venice Biennale. Too, just outside the bookshop, there are great armchairs & couches to sit and relax in after the visit.
