Egon Schiele Art Centrum, Cesky Krumlov

4.1
#2 of 16 in Museums in Cesky Krumlov
Learn more about the life and art of a major figurative painter of the early 20th century and protege of Gustav Klimt at Egon Schiele Art Centrum. Apart from paintings and drawings, the center houses an exhibit about the artist's life and work, including childhood photographs, sketchbooks, his studio furniture, and a plaster death mask. His nude portraits are rich in anatomical detail and were controversial at the time, forcing the artist to leave town after only two years. A big painted city map, in a small room on the top floor, shows the locations of the various landscapes in Schiele's paintings. Amenities include a cafe and a shop selling books, posters, postcards, and T-shirts. A visit to Egon Schiele Art Centrum represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Cesky Krumlov trip itinerary maker app to plot your vacation.

  • It is a contemporary art gallery, that is, only for those who are very understood even. I definitely didn't find anything too much in the exhibitions, including the artist who gives name to the gallery: Egon Schiele.

  • I went to this museum when I was in Cesky Krumlov. I confess that I had no idea of the life of Egon Schiele, so I enjoyed the presentation they had of it. Spent about 1 hour there, good time.  more »

  • This museum is a TOTAL FAKE! A joke! We (me and my family) are very, very dissapointed, angry and upset. There are no real art-works of mister Egon Schiele here. This is commercial exploiting of people. How do they DARE to call themselves Egon Schiele Art centre, when there is no art from him there. We are artists ourselves from the Hague, the Netherlands and hugue fans of his work. We have seen a lot of his art work. The Gemeente Museum in the Hague has several real paintings and drawings. We were hoping to see more of mister Schiele his work here. Everything here are photocopies or photos of his work on display as if it is the real-deal. Even the photos of his life and family are copies!!! The only thing real is a little sketchbook, a postcard and two small letters and 1 aquarel of his uncle. Before we went to the center, we read the reviews on google. We knew there were no real paintings of him, but were were not expecting to see photos of his drawings in poor quality. Dont go to this place it is a waste of your time, money, energy and happiness. If you go to this place you are throwing away your money as did we and it is very expensive.We have been to al lot of museums, this is not a real museum or artcentre. We are writing this review to save you the dissapointment we experienced.
  • I'm a longtime fan of Egon Schiele's art, seeking it out wherever I can. It was a wonderful surprise to find this Schiele collection and history in Český Krumlov, a place we were visiting for its own unique charms. The ES Art Centrum is a worthy sequel to Schiele's art viewed at the Leopold Museum in Vienna earlier on our trip. I would like to return to absorb the place more slowly, as there's much to see and read.
