Czech Modern Art

One can find modern Czech art in Prague at the Kampa in the Little Quarter (one of the most charming parts of the city) and at the Trade Fair Palace (Veletrzni Palac) across the river north of Florec. In both cases, I found the buildings more interesting than the art. The Kampa was designed specifically as a museum and the Trade Fair Palace is as tall as St. Vitus with wide, spacious gallaries on five floors. A few pieces stood out—like the Schieles, some prints and posters, and (dare I say it?) the National Gallery’s collection of French art. Here’s one of the lovely posters on display at Veletrzni.
