The Prague Castle Gallery

Gallery I - Prague Castle
Gallery II - U Prasného mostu
Prague 1
Prague Castle Complex

The collection of the Prague Castle Gallery I contains around 400 paintings and drawings from the sixteenth to eighteenth centuries. A few works survive from the legendary collection of Rudolph II, but most were lost as spoils of war during the seventeenth century, moved to Vienna or sold - either to the Saxons or in the 'Josephine' auction of 1782.

Regarded as the most valuable paintings in the collection are Titian's Toilet of a Young Lady, Tintoretto's Flagellation of Christ and Rubens's The Assembly of the Olympic Gods. There are other major works by artists including Hans von Aachen, Domenico Fetti, Bartolomeo Spranger, Paolo Veronese and Jacopo Bassano.

Gallery II holds temporary exhibitions, but also has a small permanent exhibition of pieces from the reign of Rudolph II.
