The National Gallery

This museum is situated in the center of Prague in an outstanding piece of Cubist architecture by Josef Gocár; The Black Madonna House. The house dates from 1911–12, and was designed for František Josef Herbst as a department store with a café on the first floor. It is a great example of how a modern building can sensitively be incorporated in the historical core of the Old Town. The exhibition of Czech Cubism presented on the second and third floors of the Black Madonna House focuses on the years 1910–19, which were the most important stage of Cubism in the Czech lands. The collection of paintings and sculptures was chosen from the holdings of the National Gallery in Prague and supplemented by a number of loans from galleries outside Prague and from private collectors.
