Trip Planner: Europe / Czech Republic / Bohemia / South Bohemian Region / Cesky Krumlov / Egon Schiele Art Centrum
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.

母親の住んでいたこの記念館には十数年前訪れていたが現在ウイーン郊外ツールンにシーレミュージアムができている。牢獄だった建物を改造したミュージアムはドナウ河畔にあり、レオポルト美術館やベルヴェデーレ美術館から貸与された絵画などが資料と共に展示されており素敵なシーレの彫像も建っている。アクセスは地下鉄u4でハイリゲンシュタットへそこからｓ40でツールンシュタット駅下車。ミュージアムまで500メートルほ... more »The memorial museum where the mother lived was visited a lot of years ago, but there is a Seele museum in the Vienna suburbs tool now. The museum, which remodeled the prison building, is located on the Danube, with paintings from the Leoporte Art Museum and the Belvedere Art Museum, along with the materials, and a wonderful statue of Seele. Access to Heiligenstadt at U4 Metro station and get off at the S40 Stadt. The museum is about 500 meters away. It is better to check the opening hours and access when visiting.
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.
