From our Guest Books
“This is clearly the most touching place in Prague. The love and passion that your family has for art, music, and the feeling that your marvelous properties belong in some fashion to all of us is so modest, and proud at the same time! It is our third visit to this place, and each time, it is a renewed experience. Thanks. Simply thanks.”
"One of the most wonderful collections we have seen! And what an amazing family history and story. Best wishes for continued success."

Architecture in the Work of Peter Paul Rubens and Václav Hollar, the new book exhibition at Lobkowicz Palace, will open on 30 November and will introduce two attractive books focusing on architecture as presented by the most distinguished Baroque artists.
Exhibited will be a first edition (1622) of the work entitled Pallazi di Genova, published in Antwerp by the prominent Flemish Baroque painter Peter Paul Rubens (1577–1640). The book presents detailed engravings of facades, cross sections and plans of Renaissance palaces and villas from Genoa, Italy. The second exhibited book, Castella et praetoria nobilium Brabantiae, was published by the historiographer Jacques le Roy (1633–1719). Also a first edition, it was published in Antwerp in 1694. The work is composed of more than 200 engravings and etchings.
Architecture in the Work of Peter Paul Rubens and Václav Hollar will run through 30 May 2013.
