Holy Night. Christmas in Fine Arts @ National Gallery Prague – Schwarzenberg Palace

The small-scale Christmas exhibition explores the subject of the birth of Jesus Christ and the related festivities as shown in prints, drawings and miniatures dating from the Middle Ages and Renaissance period to the 20th century. The presented artists include Albrecht Dürer, Jan Sadeler, Rembrandt van Rijn, Hermína Laukotová, Vojtěch Preissig, and Bohuslav Reynek.

The exhibition also introduces visitors to the special characteristics of a Czech Christmas through the iconic works of Mikoláš Aleš and Josef Lada. The last part of the exhibition is devoted to the commercial aspect of the Christmas season that increased in modern times. Even despite the shopping fever and ubiquitous rush, Christmas has retained its mysterious and joyful atmosphere and it continues to be the celebration of love, understanding, and good will in the first place.
